INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The City of Indianapolis has received $2.5 million in net revenue from parking meters in 2012.
The number is a $1 million increase from the previous year, says the Indianapolis Department of Public Works.
A DPW release says the city collected $1.5 million in 2011 and $300K in 2010. The city entered a partnership with ParkIndy to oversee meter operations and took effect starting in 2012.
Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard said in a release that the numbers provide further proof that the parking meter modernization plan was a good move for the city because it helped the city gain more revenue to do improvements and building projects. The money has also been used to add new technology making it easier to pay and park in the city.
