Parking fee boost at Alliant Energy Center

Parking fee boost at Alliant Energy Center

It's going to cost more to park at the Alliant Energy Center. The Dane County Board has approved an increase, from $6.50 to $7.00 an hour, effective June 1. Backers say with the fee at a round dollar number, there won't be a need for drivers to fidget for coins or attendants to make change. They say that adds to congestion on the Beltline when the Alliant Energy Center has events, like concerts, and many drivers arrive at the same time. Supervisor Dave de Felice is opposed. He agrees with a round dollar number, but felt the fee should have decreased to $6.00, not increased.
