Program Payment Policy-- Any customer who has an unpaid balance with the City of Keene cannot sign up for any programs or activities until that past balance is paid off.  Once the balance is paid, payments for future programs will have to be paid either up front or paid in weekly payments before the program starts. All accounts do have to be paid in full before the start date. If they are not paid in full that registrant will be unregistered from the program. Keene Parks and Recreation does offer scholarship assistance if needed but those forms do need to be filled out prior to the program starting.
