The Board of Selectman have voted to repeal a ten percent increase on parking permits in Town. This would have been the third and final increase from a proposal approved by the Board in previous years.

"My predecessor in 2011-12 recommended fee increases for several reasons- Greenwich is not he lower sides of fees, they wanted to manage the waiting list and decrease it. It was a reasonable recommendation and the Board decided to go through with it," said Rita Azrelyant, the Director of Parking Services. 

The numbers have been looked at again after two 10 percents raises over the past two years. Azrelyant says that Greenwich permit fees are now right in the middle of neighboring towns, and people are not getting their bang for their buck. 

"So we are going to clean up the parking lots, do better, make them more attractive, safer, and then see where we lie with the fees. Then, do a gradual increase because 10 percent hits a lot," said Azrelyant. 

The increase would have been about $64 per permit if it had been approved. The Town plans to utilize the revenue from the previous 20% increases and focus on improving parking lots before recommending further increases in fees.
