Clallam: County may raise fees at campgrounds, parks in 2003

Campers at Clallam County’s two largest campgrounds will have to shell out more dollars if a proposed fee increase wins county commissioners’ approval.

Craig Jacobs, county Public Works director, said 2003 cuts in the county Parks, Fair and Building Maintenance Division budget require park facilities fee increases.

“We’re faced with generating about $26,000 this year to balance the budget,” Jacobs told the commissioners at their Monday work session.

A campground fee increase from $10 to $12 a day for residents and $12 to $14 for non-residents was proposed to commissioners.

The commissioners, who are dealing with a $1.8 million budget deficit and 22 county employee layoffs, are expected to decide on the fee boost prior to approving the 2003 budget, possibly by Dec. 10.
