The Portland City Council yesterday voted to raise parking fines from $5.00 to $10.00 effective January 1. Fines for longterm parkers who feed their meters will be raised to $15.00. The city will waive the fine for overtime parking for a car owner's first ticket every three months. Under a Park and Work Plan, parking stamps will be available to downtown employees earning up to $6.00 per hour. The stamps will allow downtown workers to use downtown parking lots and garages for less than what it would cost them to park on the streets. The changes are intended to free up street parking spaces for downtown shoppers.
