LONG BEACH - Beach lovers may have to dig a little deeper into their pockets to enjoy the shore in Long Beach this summer.

The City Council is considering a plan to raise beach fees in order to make up for the loss of $900,000 to operate the beach.

The plan would increase most fees, including annual adult passes for residents, which could climb from $40 to $60. Non-resident daily passes may rise from $12 to $16.

City Manager Jack Schnirman says the increased fees would generate $1.5 million for the city.

The city last raised its beach fees in 2012.
