The City Council is preparing to change the current rule that the entrance fee is only payable during the tourism season. The draft decision provides for the fees to be payable throughout the year.
The last change in the fee system was implemented three years ago, allowing an unlimited number of times of entry within one day.
From now on, the City Council will offer passes for the entire year, priced at €180, or 49 cents per day. The one-day pass will still cost two euros.
With the change of the pass system, an additional €380 thousand will come into the budget this year and €770 thousand next year -- though it is possible the increased charge could also make some potential visitors stay away.
The City Council has not agreed the plans with the local community and it is by no means the only time Truksnis has been mired in controversy.
