Detroit Emergency Manager Kevin Orr is issuing an idea to increase parking ticket rates. Currently expired meter fines are $20.
If the proposal goes through, it will increase to $45. Double parking tickets would go from $30 to $45. Late payments will jump ticket prices to $65.
The proposal would also end discounted rates. A public hearing is scheduled Monday for citizens to discuss their opinion on the matter. According to a city official, it now falls in the hands of the citizens to come out and support or deny the mandate.
