The City of Elmira is looking into raising the fines for unpaid parking meter violations.
The city council discussed this resolution in a workshop Thursday morning at City Hall. The current fine is $10, but if the resolution passes, the fine would jump to $15.
“When you park in the downtown, we welcome you here, but please don’t violate the parking ordinance,”City of Elmira Mayor Dan Mandell, said. “If you get two-hour parking, follow that ordinance or if it’s one hour parking, please follow that.”
The resolution will be voted on during Monday’s City Council meeting at 5:30.
