TOPSAIL BEACH, N.C. (AP) - One popular North Carolina shorefront community is mulling whether you will have to pay to park when you visit the beach this summer.

Local media outlets report that the commissioners in Topsail Beach northeast of Wilmington are considering proposals that would require people to pay to park at the town’s almost 200 parking spaces.

The commissioners hear from two companies on Tuesday.

One proposal would force non-residents to pay $5 a day and $8 on weekends to park in the town. It would mean an additional $80,000 a year for the town If that proposal is approved.

Commissioners have discussed the idea of requiring visitors to pay for parking for the past several years as a way to generate more revenue.
