ELKHART LAKE, Wis. — Sheboygan County officials will meet Tuesday afternoon to consider two proposed ordinances that would change the county’s recreational user fee program introduced last year, reports the Sheboygan Press.
The current fee system charges user fees at county-owned recreation trails, campgrounds and boat landings from April through November. It was instated as a way to help pay for rising maintenance and improvement costs without increasing property taxes.
One proposal would drop fees for Old Plank Road Trail users, but charge fees year-round at boat launches, parking lots at the boat landings and campgrounds.
Another proposal would keep the camping fees, but have the county go to an all-donation system. The money donated at each facility would go to help maintain that facility.
