Benevides: City parking fees not set to increase yet

Parking fees within the City of Hamilton won't be raised today, the municipality assured motorists.

The Corporation was reported last month as planning to switch all streets in the city over to the pay and display system, in an effort to boost revenues.

However, Corporation secretary Edward Benevides yesterday issued an advisory to address “questions raised about the parking ordinance”.

Changes won't be made to Hamilton's streets without “advanced communications giving details of all the changes and their start dates”, Mr Benevides said.

Adding that his office has fielded questions about when changes would be implemented, Mr Benevides said: “I reiterate, the new parking changes will not go into effect on October 1.

“The City of Hamilton is working closely with its legal team and the Bermuda Government to address the questions raised about the Parking Ordinance as published in the daily newspaper on September 23. I encourage motorists to continue to park as they have and we will communicate fully about when the changes will be implemented.”
