GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Parking rates in the City of Greensboro have gone up for the first time in two decades. Parking tickets will also cost drivers more.
Drivers will now pay $55 per month to park in downtown decks. That's up from $50. Daily max rates will increase by $1, from $6 to $7.
Parking tickets, which once cost $10 in penalties, will now be $15.
In 2011, city officials noted more than $2 million in unpaid parking tickets. It prompted them to use a collection agency to get the money. A cost to park in city decks after 9 p.m. has also recently been imposed with patrons now paying $2.
