State Could Hike Sapelo Ferry Fee

State officials are considering raising the fees for some riders on the ferry connecting the Georgia mainland with Sapelo Island.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources said in a statement that proposed changes to the fee structure for certain guests would involve a rate increase. Officials say the increase is being considered partly to address increased operational costs.

A public meeting on the proposed changes is set for 10 a.m. on Nov. 8 in the Senior Citizens Center on Sapelo Island.
