The city says its struggling financially and can't afford to solely maintain the city's baseball parks. So, council voted to charge the Yakima Valley Legion Ball league with a $3,000 fee to use its parks.
The city is also cutting back on its maintenance for its little league.
"It will get more heated once the community finds out that the council members have reached into the pockets of their kids and the fields that they built, there will be more," Dave Frampton said.
Selah City council decided not to impose the fee on its own Little League.
The city will still pay for the parks utilities.
