BY COUNCILOR GILBERT:
RESOLVED, that the city of Duluth (the city) hereby authorizes acceptance from the Duluth economic development authority (DEDA) in an amount up to $4,000 pertaining to the hiring of an additional parking meter monitor, payable into Fund 100, Agency 200, Organization 1620, Object 4650.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The purpose of this resolution is to accept the reimbursement from DEDA with regard to the city’s hiring of an additional parking meter monitor. DEDA will reimburse the city the amount of $4,000 which equals approximately one-half the salary of a parking meter monitor over a four-month period. A monitor will be assigned, in part, during the summer months to monitor parking lots in the Canal Park area including DEDA-owned and managed lots. Staff believes that additional ticketing will increase DEDA revenues from these lots by promoting turnover and the payment of amounts due for parking.
