Cost of getting married in L.A. County is going up
Some might say the cost of getting married is already high.
But beginning on Jan. 21, the price of tying the knot will get a little more expensive.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has approved an increase in the cost of a marriage license to $90 from $70. The cost of a so-called confidential license will rise to $85 from $70.
According to a statement from the county, the fee hike will generate about $500,000 in additional revenue for the cash-strapped county government coffers between January and June.
In other action, the board approved a contract to maintain the county's 211 phone service, which provides residents with referrals to child abuse and mental health hotlines, among other things.
