Parking fees at downtown lots and ramps will rise by $5 next year in Niagara Falls, and the off-season rate at downtown parking meters also will increase.
One-day prices in the three downtown lots and the city ramp will rise to $25 during the tourist season and $15 in the off-season.
Year-round downtown parking passes, which start at $25 for city residents, now will cost $15 for senior citizens and $50 for Niagara County residents from outside the city.
But the City Council balkdc at a proposal from Councilman Andrew P. Touma to charge $5 an hour at on-street parking meters during the tourist season May 1 to Oct. 31.
The Council kept the current $3 peak-season price, but agreed to raise the off-season charge from $1 to $2.
