If you are you’ll have one more chance to speak your mind at the town council meeting Monday morning at 9AM. Councilman Dan Allers believes residents never really had a chance to provide any input on the increase and he wants to give them one more opportunity to share their thoughts with the council.
This month, all public parking spaces owned by the town will go from costing $3.00 per hour to $5.00 per hour. The town owns parking spaces under the bridge and along Old San Carlos Boulevard, among other areas on the beach. Lee County owns Lynn Hall Park where the fee is $2.00 per hour, and will not change.
Councilman Bill Veach said revisiting this means “they could go up as well.”
The council also raised the application fee for vacation rentals from $50.00 to $300.00.
Both fee increases will go into effect on January 1, 2022.
