MADISON, WI – The Dane County Park Commission will hold a public hearing regarding proposed 2019 park fee increases. The hearing will take place on August 29, 2018 at 6:30 pm at the Lyman Anderson Conservation Center, 5201 Fen Oak Drive Madison, WI 53718.

The Dane County Park Commission sets the fee structure for services provided in the county parks.  Each year, the fees are evaluated and adjusted in order to offset operational and maintenance costs associated with the various park activities.  Last year, the Park Commission elected not to raise permit fees. This year, modest increases in a few service areas have been proposed including, camping, disc golf and combined trail permits.
