SF committee to discuss Botanical Gardens fees

SAN FRANCISCO

The gardens has been charging a $7 fee for non-city residents for eight months now to help bridge a budget deficit. But its raised only $59,000 -- not the projected $250,000.

Opponents say the fee has resulted in a total drop in visitors. Supervisors will hear arguments today from those who want the gardens to be free for everyone and those who want to make the fees permanent.
