City Council Meeting Tomorrow (Parking Fees on Agenda)

A neighbor (thank you, Brian) provided the following info:

“Just an FYI. On the City Council agenda for the March 20, 2018 meeting an ordinance change is being requested to increase the parking fees/fines as of July 1, 2018. I’m not sure if a hearing will take place or if the council will just vote on it at the meeting.”

After some digging, I found this,¬†which offers the new rates under discussion, and which is part of the larger agenda for this meeting. For anyone interested in attending, here’s the info.

Date: March 20, 2018
Time: 6:30 PM
Location: City Council Chamber, 375 Merrimack Street, 2nd Floor, Lowell, MA

No one likes to have their fees go up, but the increases they’re talking about now look much more reasonable than the ones they were discussing earlier. The¬†monthly pass card rates for the Leo Roy Garage given in the new ordinance are:
(1) Individual pass card: $87, market rate
(2) Pass cards, group billing (20 o r more): $71, 81% of market rate
(3) Residents of the central business district: $66, 75% of market rate
(4) Persons 62 years of age and over residing in downtown Lowell and handicapped or disabled persons residing in downtown Lowell shall pay $36 per space per month .
