Bethany Beach Considers Increasing Parking Fees

Posted: Updated:

 

BETHANY BEACH, Del. - The Bethany Beach Town Council considered increasing hourly rates for parking meters and parking fines at a workshop Friday. 

The increase in parking fees would cover entertainment, additional police officers, beach patrol and lifeguards used during the summer, according to Mayor Lew Killmer. He believes these things should be paid by summer visitors. 

"The added cost of running a town during the summer, it can't really a burden put on the people who live here year round. It's really the people who vacation here," said Killmer. 

The town proposed the meter parking hourly rate be increased from $2 to $2.50. Fines for parking would also increase: $15 fine would be rounded up to $20, $30 or $35 fine would be rounded up to $40. 

These proposals will be voted on at the next town council meeting, Friday, Nov. 15. If passed, the increases will be implemented next summer.
