Rates going up for BWCA permits!

Just got notice at the annual Forest Service/permit discussion meeting (this afternoon) that there will be an increase in reserving BWCA permits!

The company that is doing them lost the "bid" for next year so from what I heard, proposed to raise rates for the reservation fee from $6.00 to $10.00.

At meeting with Forest Service today it was sort of said, "Lucky they didn't go up more than that". I guess there was nothing in the contract that said they couldn't raise rates. (?) Was told not sure when this will start, maybe soon.

Heard that they might want to go retroactive on permits already reserved but not sure how they could legally do that.

Don't blame the Forest Service for this one, out of their hands.
