LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Public parking rates are going up in Louisville next month.
Starting July 1, the Parking Authority of River City (PARC) is increasing rates at parking meters and some garages.
Parking meters will increase by 25 cents, to $1.50, while monthly rates at all PARC garages are increasing by $5.
PARC director Tiffany Smith says a majority of these garages have not seen a rate hike since 2007.
PARC will also begin enforcing Saturday rates gradually. A law requiring parkers to pay meters on Saturdays has been on the books for years, but rarely enforced.
Starting July 9, officials will distribute bright green notices advising the public on these changes.
