City Council Considers Parking Meter Changes
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — City Council is considering some changes to its parking meter rules as they field more complaints from drivers.
The City Council is expected to move in the next two weeks to make some adjustments to the parking meter rate increases and when meters are enforced.
Councilman Bill Peduto is one of the forces behind possible changes.
Some of the complaints include improper enforcement of various rates across the city and the lack of modernization of the parking meters.
Council says in the next two weeks it’s going to look at the parking meter matter and introduce changes before the Parking Authority’s September 15 meeting.
The increases were approved to help deal with the city’s budget shortfall.
Residents and business owners say downtown parking meters keep business and visitors away from the area.
