PARKING fines around Launceston will go up by 30 per cent from June 4 if aldermen back an update of its 2003 parking bylaw at a Launceston City Council meeting tomorrow.
Fines will jump by $15 to $65 under the proposed update.
Parking fees will also be updated.
Fined motorists will still have three discount periods available to them for payment within seven days, 14 days or 28 days.
A maximum discount of either $25 or $35 is available, depending on which of the 23 offences has been committed and if the fine is paid within 14 days of the offence.
In other matters:
● The council will decide whether it will adopt a strategic plan for the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery which includes a cut in the council’s financial contribution to the facility by $800,000 over five years.
● The council will decide whether to lease a section of Heritage Forest at Invermay to Dry Slopes to allow for a synthetic ski slope. The slope will form part of a tube park development expected to be open by October.
● The council will decide whether to postpone rates payments on subdivisions either until blocks are sold or until June 30, 2014.
● The council will decide whether to adopt a graffiti prevention and reduction policy, committing to quick removal of graffiti from council-owned property and activities that will allow graffiti artists to showcase their work.
