Chehaw will charge more

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  It will cost you a little more to visit the Wild Animal Park at Chehaw.  

The Albany City Commission was informed that the park authority increased admission rates by 50 cents for children and 75 cents for adults at the park, bringing total admission to $4.50 and $7.75 respectively.

Park Director Doug Porter said the increase is to offset the increased costs they are facing.     "We've noticed the price of animal feed has gone up dramatically. In fact, a lot of our suppliers are tacking a surcharge onto our costs because of the gas prices."

The fee increase will bring in about an additional $20,000 in revenue a year. The new rates go into effect in 60 days.
