Montpelier Increases the Cost to Park in Montpelier

You know how everyone hates parking in Montpelier?

On Feb. 1, the cost to park went up, in some cases it more than doubled.

Parking meters went from 75 cents to $1. Permits for lots such as 60 State Street and Blanchard Court went from $50 to $100 a month.

According to the announcement, "These rate changes were recommended to bring the cost up to market rate, ensure that the parking fund (which pays for parking area maintenance and improvements) was fiscally healthy, and to promote economic development downtown."

I wonder if that means that the parking lots will actually get repaired, or if they continue look the streets of Lebanon circa 1988.
