The latest victims of Fairfax County's effort to raise funds in dire financial times could be wedding photographers, kids hosting birthday parties, or decked out teens looking for a romantic spot for prom pictures.

The Fairfax County Park Authority on Wednesday will host a public hearing on a proposal to raise fees for some park and recreation center use, according to The Washington Post.

If the proposal passes, adult county residents would pay $7.40 for a daylong pass, up from $6.85. Non-county residents would pay $9.90, up from $9.15. The fees would bring fees at Fairfax parks more in line with charges at some other parks in the Washington region.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday in room 106 of the county's Herrity Building at 12055 Government Center Parkway.

To sign up to speak, call the park authority at 703-324-8662.
