Those getting a 2013 Cook County Forest Preserve picnic permit Wednesday can expect to pay more.

In-person sales of permits for 2013 began Wednesday morning at the headquarters in west suburban River Forest.

Permits are also available online at fpdcc.com/permits/picnic-permits.

The district voted to raise the cost of a picnic permit in December in order to pay for maintenance.
