City makes nearly $1 million in parking tickets through August
COLUMBIA - Officials are getting ready to discuss a new report Monday, detailing parking enforcement in Columbia. The report includes data about how many parking tickets drivers are getting and how much money they are generating.
According to the data from Clancy Systems, the city made $981,399 in parking tickets from January to August in 2015. That's more than in all of 2014.
According to data on the same report, the city earned $933,571 from January to December in 2014. Additionally, the report showed more than $430,000 worth of unpaid tickets from January to August of 2015.
The increase in generated revenue comes on the heels of a time change for parking enforcement along with an increase in ticket prices.
These numbers come from a new report on the city's parking enforcement. It is one of several reports scheduled for Monday night's city council meeting. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
