Longer meter season in Rehoboth?
Some businesses in Rehoboth Beach are concerned about a proposal to extend parking meter use into the shoulder season.
Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce President Carol Everhart says it would hurt planned events that use free parking as an incentive for visiting the downtown area.
Officials have increased fines, fees, and taxes for two years to keep up with revenue shortfalls. The recent proposal to add two more weeks of active parking meters in the town's commercial areas is the latest in a string of budget balancing attempts.
The proposal would keep 894 of the city's meters running until Oct. 3. City Manager Greg Ferrese says that could generate $46,000 a year.
