DeKalb wants to raise golf, parking fees

The county commission will vote next week on charging $3 for parking at Recorders Court, the jail, human resources and other county services near Camp Road, said Keith Barker, the county’s chief operating officer. Parking is now free.

The commission is also looking at increasing fees at the county’s two golf courses.

The increased rates will allow the county to stop subsidizing the courses, officials said. The proposal calls for weekday passes to increase from $17 to $19 for residents at Mystery Valley and from $15 to $17 at Sugar Creek. It also calls for non-resident rates to increase from $23 to $25 at Mystery Valley and from $21 to $23 at Sugar Creek.

The commission will vote on the fees on Feb. 9.
