Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr proposes to double city parking tickets

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Emergency manager Kevyn Orr is looking to increase revenue to the city by raising the cost of parking tickets in Detroit.

A public hearing is set for this afternoon to discuss the possible increase.

Under his proposal, parking meter fines would increase from $20 to $45.

And that's not the only increase you might soon be seeing.

Orr wants $30 tickets to increase to $45.  If those tickets are not paid within 30 days, the fines would increase to $65.

He also proposed the idea of eliminating reductions for people who make payments within 10 days of a ticket being issued.

The higher fees are also expected to cover the cost of processing the ticket.

If you're interested in attending the hearing, it is being held at City Hall at 3 p.m.
