Parking fees will be reinstated at city-owned lots and parkades in September, after being temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kamloops council has agreed to reinstate the fees beginning Sept. 7.
Council earlier reinstated on-street parking fees after stalls were overtaken by people seeking long-term parking, leaving limited spaces open for customers.
The city will keep lots and parkades free for now, due to high water closing the north lot at Sandman Centre and work at the two parkades that began earlier this month that has displaced permit holders. The result is a loss in parking revenue, though the city also notes people are also cancelling their parking permits as a result from working at home during the pandemic.
