Almost all fees charged by the City of Brookings — from business licenses for circuses to park use fees — will see a slight uptick if the city council approves the recommendations discussed at a work session Monday afternoon.
The city council reviews the fees every year, said City Manager Gary Milliman, and decides whether to apply a cost-of-living adjustment.
The costs haven’t increased much over the years, noted Mayor Ron Hedenskog.
“I remember in 1979 when I bought my first business license for $60,” he said. “Now it’s $62.”
A 17-year-old Brookings student whose SUV veered into oncoming traffic after she fell asleep at the wheel and killed a motorcyclist in 2010, had her 2011 conviction overturned Wednesday by the Oregon Court of Appeals.
Sierra Nicole Rigel, who graduated Brookings-Harbor High School in 2011, had been found guilty in juvenile court in 2011 of criminally negligent homicide and third-degree assault. She was sentenced to 100 hours of community service and had her license revoked for the rest of her life.
