Manitou Springs - Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs city councils will vote next week on whether to legally opening the Manitou incline. It's not clear if either will approve it.

A Manitou Springs special meeting last night revealed a deep divide among members.

Some are wanting a fee to hike the trail to curb the number of people who visit.

They want that fee in place when the incline opens as part of the agreement.
