JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – As a part of the Mayor’s 2023 Executive budget, the price of on-street parking meters could double next year.
While addressing the council on the changes coming with this year’s proposed executive budget, which Mayor Eddie Sundquist formally presented earlier this month, officials addressed the potential increase in income that the city could acquire.
The on-street parking proposal will double the amount collected from parking meters with a projected annual revenue of $254,000 dollars, compared to 2022’s $127,000 dollars.
“We have decided as an Executive group to increase the parking meters from 25 cents to 50 cents for 30 minutes, or a dollar an hour,” explained city Comptroller John Sellstrom.
All matters of the proposed budget will be discussed, and if necessary, changed by the city council, before a formal vote in December.
