Parking cost increase

The increase would translate to about 20 to 30 cents per hour with respective increases to daily and other rates.

Last month, council voted to apply the increase to all on-street and off-street parking in order to foreshadow the State Government’s decision to increase the levy by the same 6 per cent as last year.

The City estimates the increase would approximate to a total payment of $11.54 million to the State Government in levies for the 2014/15 financial year.
