The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors today is expected to consider several increases in fees for various county services.

According to its agenda, the board will consider proposals to:

-- Add a 20% co-sponsorship fee for events at county parks, as well as a $20 swimming lesson fee. (The proposal would also create a financial aid program for those in need).

-- Increase fees at county parking garages in the L.A. civic center area during non-peak hours.

-- Increase fees at county facilities at Marina del Rey, including parking.

-- Modify fees for the spaying and neutering of pets by the Department of Animal Care and Control, including daily boarding, veterinary care and vaccinations.
