FORT MYERS, Fla - The Fort Myers city council will move forward with a hike in downtown parking fees.
The council approved a five dollar hike in the monthly rate for parking in city lots and garages. Special event parking will go up a dollar to five dollars. The extra 75 thousand dollars or so the increase will generate will go for lot maintenance and to build a third downtown garage.
The new rates go into effect February first.
