Fees were increased this year...multiply average tickets at $300 to $350 x 56,000 - 60,000 and the answer is "What You Want More" greed will destroy a good thing...So why increase for 2013 since it was done this year and county officals need to keep their hands out of the cookie jar. Even the $250 a ticket times 56,000 tickets thats lot of money and who's hands it goes through should be public to see what it is used for on a yearly basis. Not saying the mony is missused, from what I hear of BMan they work to keep it safe but when people get greedy especially county offcals wanting a new ordinance to put money in their pockets..don't you think the increase of this year has put enough money in all your pockets!...and you want more...not!

Sometimes I wonder if it is really burners making these threats. I can see it set up by Pershing County authorities to further smear Burning Man.
