The City of Chelan has been raising fees over the last year or so on everything from youth programs to parking fees at Don Morse Park. City Administrator Wade Farris was asked about the higher fees, and he said the city isn't making any money from them:

Farris says the city's insurance costs are factored in the fees as well; he says insurance companies have informed the city that their rates will be going up 25 percent.
