Los Altos Hills is willing to pay about $135,000 per year to gain access to Foothills Park, the Town Council voted unanimously Thursday night with one member absent, Councilman Breene Kerr said Friday.
The figure is an estimate of the city's per capita share of the park's $1 million annual operating costs, Kerr said.
Los Altos Hills has 8,000 residents.
Kerr said the city managers of Palo Alto and Los Altos Hills met before the Thursday council meeting to discuss the deal. City Manager Frank Benest was not available for comment Friday due to the city's every-other-Friday-off work schedule.
The Los Altos Hills council hopes Palo Alto will spend the money to keep Fire Station 8 open throughout the summer, but does not plan to restrict the funds, Kerr said.
It would cost $140,000 more than currently budgeted to staff the foothills station for the entire summer.
The Palo Alto City Council plans to discuss the station's staffing at its meeting Monday, July 16, at 7 p.m.
