    "visitors will have to pay a little extra to get on the dike this year."

    A little? I don't call double the cost 'a little extra'. I wouldn't go there if I had to pay double the fees. I'd find someplace cheaper. Like free..... that's my favorite price. Then again, I pick up after myself.[smile]

    Still a bargain. Free is better, but most free spots don't offer what the Dike does.

    Maybe hand out a large trash bag to each paying car. They might get the picture. There should be more police riding around and handing out tickets to the people driving away from the trash they leave. Also handing out tickets to more people for the glass beer bottles will also increase income to the city.
