Irate over parking rate

Parking Rate Increase!!!  I'm sorry but the City of Kelowna just paid thousands in Revitalizing Downtown Kelowna, to encourage people to shop and visit.

Increasing parking rates on meters to $1.25 from $.50  is pretty big increase, do you honestly think people will want to go downtown when parking is free at the mall.

An increase sure but what about over two years still making it attractive to go downtown.

Certainly the Mayor and the Council did not consider the impact to business owners.

I shake my head, are we paying for that $80,000 washroom thru our parking rates?
