City leaders in Miami have tentatively agreed to raise parking rates citywide, but only for people who don't live in the city.
The Miami Parking Authority asked the city commission to raise rates for public parking lots, garages and curbside spots throughout the city. Some leaders balked, saying they wanted to keep city residents from having to pay the higher fees.
However, on Thursday night, the city commission approved a plan that lets residents who register through a mobile payment system pay the current parking rates, and non-residents would pay the higher rates.
The commission still has to vote on the amended city ordinance.
That will happen at its next meeting on September 27.
