CDA Public Hearing Tonight On Parking And Other Fees

A proposed change to the price of parking for downtown and midtown businesses could mean fee increases for the residents of Coeur d'Alene.

A public hearing is scheduled for tonight at 6 p.m. in the Community Room at the Coeur d'Alene Public Library on the proposed parking in lieu fee increase. The proposed formula would give midtown business owners the option of paying $5,000 per stall they couldn't provide customers at their business, while for downtown stores it would be around $10,000 -- a jump from the previous $1,500 cost.

A number of other increased rates could be ushered in too, including: First time police fingerprinting fees; fines for dog at large and having an unlicensed dog, garbage service fees, and water hook up fees.

Here's the story and how much those fines/fees could be increasing.
