BLOOMINGTON-Fees will be increasing in Bloomington after tonight's city council meeting.
The city council voted to approve the parking garage fees, along with the hourly rate from 65 cents to $1.
Bloomington also approved a $2 garbage fee increase from $14 to $16 a month to help support the city's $165 million dollar budget for the 2013 fiscal year.
Councilman Steven Purcell said, "The service is not paying for itself at this time so that's why we're raising this because of taking money out of the general fund. at one point we should get to the enterprise system where it will pay for itself."
The overall city budget increase for street resurfacing work, park design work and performing arts center work was still being discussed at council.
