The hourly on-street rate of $2 will remain the same while the bottom two tiers of $1.50 and $1 will be grouped into the $1 price.

The proposed on-street rate adjustments will be submitted to the Government Management Committee on Sept. 25. Council will then consider the changes at its meeting on Oct. 2.

If approved, the changes will come into effect starting this fall and continuing in the spring of 2018.
