Bangor Committee Considers Parking Fine Changes 

Catherine Pegram

A city committee in Bangor is considering raising fees on some parking fines and lower them on others. The Government Operations Committee is discussing tonight whether to increase the fee for overtime parking from $12 to $15.They’re also talking about creating a new fine for those who park in handicapped spaces, but don’t have their handicapped signs on display. Those drivers would normally be forced to pay $200 for that violation. Instead, under the new rule, they’d pay $25. If the parking rules pass, the city council still needs to approve them.
