SCUGOG: People who want to park at the Port Perry boat launch are now going to have to pay a little more on weekends and holidays.
On Monday, May 11, Scugog Council decided to hike fees for vehicles with boat trailers on those days from $10 to $12. The fee increase is intended to help fund the township’s new pay by plate parking terminal.
With the new machine, customers will input their license plate number into the terminal when they are paying for parking. They will no longer be given a receipt to display on the dashboard like the previous machine did.
The advantage of the new terminal is that it will put a stop to people sharing parking passes council were told. Debit and credit cards will be accepted at the new terminal .Part time bylaw officers patrol the parking lot on weekends. No date has been set for when the new machine will be installed.
The Boat launch is located at 2 Old Rail Lane.
