As expected Beaufort City Council has approved increased parking times for Bay Street and decreased parking rates along areas further from Bay Street to lure parkers.
Rates on Bay Street and nearby spaces will remain at $1, but as drivers move further back to Port Republic and Craven streets rates will tier down to 75¢ and 50¢.
I wasn't able to make the Tuesday, January 11, meeting, but The Island Packet was there and has a nice report; take a read here.
Now it looks like we'll see as to how and if this changes the overall tone in the parking debate.
