CITY OF OWENSBORO ANNOUNCES NEW PARKING FINE STRUCTURE

 

The Owensboro Board of Commissioners passed a new
parking fine structure last Thursday night at the city commission meeting.  Ordinance 5-2013 will take effect May 1, 2013
and will cover the entire municipal boundary of the city of Owensboro.

 

Mayor Payne commented, “The parking fine structure
has not been reviewed in 33 years.  With
millions of dollars in public and private investment in our city, it was
prudent of the commission to review the rate structure to encourage easier
access to parking downtown and throughout the city.”
