Starting with the new year, Habersham County residents will be able to use the gymnasiums and the pools at the Ruby C. Fulbright Aquatic Center free of charge.
The Habersham County Board of Commissioners voted Monday to waive the $4 per day fees.
A statement released by the county said anyone who has purchased passes that extend beyond Jan. 1, 2022 will receive a pro-rated refund check.
"The waived daily fee of $4 will allow free access to the gymnasiums and pools, as long as scheduled events are not in session," the statement said.
Those who want to rent the facilities for group events will still be subject to rental fees.
