According to John Gass, managing director with PK Harris Advisors, this is the first meter rate increase since Park Harrisburg has assumed responsibility for specific meter parking spaces and garages in 2013.

“The new rates, reflecting a 3% increase over a 10-year period, have been under consideration for some time to provide sufficient cash flow to maintain expenses associated with the parking system,” Gass said.

Again, the new rates will take place on August 2.
