VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - Skateboarders and cyclists may have to start paying to use the Virginia Beach’s skate parks.

The Virginian-Pilot reports (https://bit.ly/1cBvRCc ) city officials will vote on a budget proposal Tuesday that includes a plan to have the city’s residents pay $3 to $5 to use the skate parks next year. All three facilities are currently free and are always staffed when they’re open.

Parks and natural areas coordinator Rick Rowe says the facilities cost about $216,000 a year to operate.

For children who live in Virginia Beach, a day pass would cost $3 and an annual pass $20. The fees for resident adults would be $5 and $30, respectively. The passes would be good for all three parks. Skaters who live outside the city would have to pay more for annual passes.
