Parking Meter Increases Effective February 1, 2012
Ordinance 114-O-11 will increase parking meter fees will increase by $.25/hour for meters with max time limits of 2, 3 & 4 hours as well as increasing the remaining meters by a commensurate amount. The fee change is proposed to take effect on February 1, 2012. This was introduced at City Council on December 12, 2011 with expected approval on January 9, 2012.
The city has very few 20 minute and 30 minute meters and the impact of these changes to the budget and the user is minimal. Longer term meters impact employee and commuter parking and the city also has considerably fewer meters in this category than in the two hour zones. See fee structure and ordinance here>>>
