City Council to vote on game day parking
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Finding a good parking spot during home Notre Dame football games can be a big problem. Right now, anyone who wants to let people park on their lawns has to pay the city a fee.
And that fee can cost owners up to $50 on game day, depending on how many cars they have on their lawn.
The ordinance can fine homeowners up to $100 if they they do not get a permit.
However, some residents want the city to drop the fee.
The South Bend City Council may vote Monday to get rid of the current lawn parking fee on game days first set into place in 2007.
If approved, residents will no longer have to get a permit. But other parking laws would remain.
The city has made thousands of dollars off of permits and fines over the past five years.
