Monticello • Federal land managers are seeking public comment on the draft business plan for the San Juan River.

Bureau of Land Management officials say the plan calls for an increase in river recreation fees to help cover operational costs, which have soared since the last fee increase in 2001.

More than 11,000 visitors take river trips each year in San Juan County.

Plans call for an increase in fee rates from $6 to $10 per person for river trips between Sand Island and Mexican Hat; from $12 to $20 per person for river trips between Mexican Hat and Clay Hills; and from $18 to $30 per person for river trips between Clay Hills and Sand Island.

The BLM also seeks a new $6 permit application fee for all private river launches.
