A parking violation in the village of Carey might cost you a little more in the future. The Courier reports village council gave first reading to an ordinance this week that would see parking tickets increase from $3 to $10. If the ticket wasn’t paid within 72 hours the fine would increase to $20.
Carey might also increase the penalty for parking illegally in a handicap space. Right now the fine is $250, with all the money going to the state. The proposed ordinance would allow a judge to have discretion of fining an offender up to $500, with a portion of that money staying in the village.
