Last week, I took my 11 year old to Friday Night Skate at Hommocks Park Ice Rink.
I bought a 12 session card and, I thought, ice skate rental for the same number of sessions. I showed the cashier my driver’s license (with my Mamaroneck address)and gave her my debit card. She gave my son a receipt to show that we paid for the ice skate rental.
As you know, Friday Nght Skate is super busy, so I just signed my receipt and left. I was just looking at bank statement and saw that I was charged $74. I went to the Hommocks Ice website to check on prices. I am now understanding that I need a resident ID card (but I had no clue about this while at the rink for the first time), so I would have only been charged $55 and I wanted to pay for the skate rental to get the package.
I don’t understand why the cashier didn’t mention the resident ID card when I purposefully showed her my driver’s license with my Mamaroneck address.
So I emailed the Mamaroneck Town Dept. of Recreation. I received the following reply from the Rec Dept:
Unfortunately, Rye Neck is not considered a resident. It is a different school district.
So, I went back and looked over the forms and there is NOTHING mentioning school districts.
Thank you for your time,
editor: We welcome clarification from the Town.
Residency for purposes of the Hommocks Ice Rink is defined as those that are property owners and taxpayers in the Town of Mamaroneck. Residents of Rye Neck do not pay property taxes in the Town of Mamaroneck.

Hommocks is a Mamk Town, (not Village) rink. Rye Neck is clearly not in the Town of Mamk. Why should they be allowed to offer you a discount. They are correct not to.
