DOVER, Del. (AP) - Officials are wrapping up a series of public meetings on proposed increase in user fees at Delaware’s state parks.

The fiscal 2015 capital budget approved by lawmakers earlier this year authorized the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control to propose a fee increase after receiving public comment and approval of advisory councils.

Officials have held public comment sessions in Sussex and New Castle counties, and the final session was scheduled for Tuesday at Killens Pond in Kent County.

Lawmakers say the Division of Parks and Recreation should be allowed to collect appropriate fees to cover the costs of activities and services.
