FALMOUTH, Maine (AP) — The state of Maine is planning to add admission booths at some parks and charge admission this summer.
The director of the state Bureau of Parks and Lands says he hopes the addition will raise between $110,000 and $120,000 a year, helping the bureau deal with a tight budget.
Director Will Harris tells the Portland Press Herald he’s not happy about it, but it’s probably the best choice available.
Some of the locations that will see booths include as Mackworth Island in Falmouth, Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth and Colonial Pemaquid in New Harbor.
The fees will take effect at different times at different locations.
