I support the idea of lockers and am willing to put money up in support of
them.

I would prefer that we simply raise the money for the lockers and then
either let them be a member privilege, or else charge a one-time "get me a
locker" fee ($100?), rather than having it be an ongoing monthly expense,
the enforcement of which would either put more workload on our
already-hard-working treasurer or would simply be lost.
