Number in household
Household Income 1 2 3 4 5
$0-$25,000 50% 60% 60% 60% 60%
$25,001-$30,000 40% 60% 60% 60% 60%
$30,001-$35,000 30% 50% 60% 60% 60%
$35,001-$40,000 20% 40% 50% 60% 60%
$40,001-$45,000 10% 30% 40% 50% 60%
$45,001-$50,000 0% 20% 30% 40% 50%
$50,001-$55,000 0% 10% 20% 30% 40%
$55,001-$60,000 0% 0% 10% 20% 30%
$60,001-$65,000 0% 0% 0% 10% 20%

* The percentage is the discount off the regular fee. For example, if there are two adults and an 11 year old child in a household with a household income of $42,000, then their monthly fee would be $55 for the first adult + $27.50 for the second adult + $14.25 for the child = $96.75 – 40% ($) = $58.05 a month. The one time joiner fee (unless a member quits and then rejoins) is always 3 times the monthly rate, and would be based on the reduced monthly rate.
