Parking Meters Downtown Lexington 4 Time Higher

While the cost of filling up your gas tank is a little more affordable at the moment; the cost of parking along the street in downtown Lexington is about to go up, way up.

Starting January 5th, rates for on street parking meters will jump from a quarter to a dollar per hour.

Some business owners have complained that the new meters and rates might chase away business.

A survey of more than 50 U.S. cities shows even with the new higher rates, Lexington's meter parking will still be below the national average.
