County Commissioners "up" the costs for concealed weapons permits | News
Latah County commissioners increased the fees for a permit to carry a concealed weapon.
A concealed weapons permit application went from $56 to $80 and a permit renewal from $22 to $50. The increases started Thursday, July 25th.
The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports commissioners say the increase is needed so the Latah County Sheriff's office stops losing money processing the applications.
Sheriff's office spokesman Mike Rosen says the state increased the cost of processing fingerprints and background checks in October and again this month.
Rosen says no one came forward to oppose or support the increase during a public hearing Wednesday.
