Parking Fees to Increase

If you're looking for parking in Evanston, be prepared to start paying more.

 

In an 8-1 vote, City Council passed a motion to raise the hourly rate of parking meters 25 cents. With a 5-4 vote, they raised parking fines from 10 to 15 dollars.

 

Some city officials say higher parking costs will discourage consumers from shopping for a longer time at Evanston stores.

 

However they also say the increases could generate 1 million dollars of revenue for the city's 2012 budget.
