AZGFD Schedules Public Meetings on License Fee Increases
Public meetings set on proposed license and tag fee increases.
Proposed changes to fees can be found on the AZGFD web site at:
The Arizona Game and Fish Department is holding a series of meetings across the state in November, seeking public input on a proposal to increase the prices of hunting and fishing licenses and big game tags.
Earlier this year, the Arizona Legislature passed a bill raising the fee ceilings under which the Arizona Game and Fish Commission is authorized to establish license, tag, stamp and permit prices. The commission is seeking price increases within those ceilings so the department can meet rising costs of doing business.
The meetings will provide the public with information on potential increases, the rationale behind them, and the opportunity to provide comment.
The meetings will be held on the following dates:
Wednesday, Nov. 9, 6 p.m., Arizona Game and Fish Department's headquarters, Roadrunner Room, 2222 W. Greenway Road, Phoenix.
Thursday, Nov. 10, 6 p.m., Arizona Game and Fish Department's Mesa regional office, 7200 E. University Drive, Mesa.
Monday, Nov. 14, 6 p.m., Arizona Game and Fish Department's Yuma regional office, 9140 E. 28th St., Yuma.
Monday, Nov. 14, 6 p.m., Best Western Payson Inn, 801 N. Beeline Highway, Payson.
Tuesday, Nov. 15, 6 p.m., Arizona Game and Fish Department's Pinetop regional office, 2878 E. White Mountain Blvd., Pinetop.

Friday, Nov. 18, 6 p.m., Arizona Game and Fish Department's Kingman regional office, 5325 N. Stockton Hill Road, Kingman.
The Arizona Game and Fish Department will make pricing recommendations at the meeting of the Arizona Game and Fish Commission, Dec. 9-10, at the Francisco Grande Hotel and Golf Resort, 26000 W. Gila Bend Highway, Casa Grande.
Those recommendations, if approved by the commission, would go through the formal rulemaking process. The increases would affect licenses, tags and stamps that will be used beginning in 2007.
