JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Grand Teton National Park is considering charging higher fees for businesses that operate within the park.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1Jfy6p1 ) the park currently charges a $300 annual fee for permits to operate businesses such as guided tours and hikes, photography and painting workshops, towing services and outfitting for the park’s elk hunt.

The park proposes continuing the $300 fee, but adding a reasonable fee based on the income of each operation. It also is considering allowing more businesses to operate in the park.

Park spokesman Andrew White says revenue from the businesses is used to manage park programs.

The park is accepting public comment on the proposed fee change through May 15.
