Lafayette parking meter rates increase

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Lafayette drivers are scrambling for more change to put into the parking meters after an increase in parking rates was approved by the City-Parish Council.

The new rates, which went into effect Nov. 1, bumped the cost of a typical two-hour meter from 60 cents to $1, and the cost of a one-hour meter from 40 cents to 60 cents.

Officials estimate the parking meters will bring in about $242,000 for fiscal year 2012-13 - an increase of nearly $42,000.

Since the vast majority of the city's parking meters are two-hour meters, most drivers will pay the higher fees.
