Tahoe City Public Utilities District Parks and Recreation Department recently unveiled their new automated online registration program. The Active Network Inc., based in San Diego, is the leading online recreation and conference registration company in the country. Tahoe City Public Utility District has contracted with this Web site hosting company to help make registering for activities, renting facilities, communicating and disseminating class information more convenient for you as the customer. Not only does the software accept credit cards, it also provides online registration 24/7, immediate e-mail confirmation, blasts on new programs and a variety of marketing tools.

Do you want to know if that class you’re interested in still has spaces available? Simply go online and look. Save gas and a trip to Rideout…register online at home.

Don’t have access to the internet? The TCPUD Parks and Rec Department staff, as always, is here to help you register for recreational programs. You can still stop by the Rideout Community Center front desk, call, mail or fax in your registrations.

So, how do you get started?

Log onto http://www.tahoecitypud.com. Click on ‘register’ under the Parks and Recreation tab at the top of the page. From there, click on ‘Registration Online’ by clicking here!’.
