Parking in Newark will become much more expensive in 2023, with fines increasing for the first time in six years and rates increasing for the first time in more than two decades.
All new charges will take effect on January 1 and are the first increases in Newark parking fees since 2017. Newark Mayor Stu Markham stated that the city is revising its rules in response to changes in state legislation.
The current fine for expired meters in on-street parking and downtown lots is $20.
If you do not pay your ticket within 30 days, the price rises to $49.
The fee for parking in a disabled place without permission will increase from $100 to $300, while the fine for parking in a fire lane will increase from $75 to $180. If you pay within 15 days, you will also receive a 50% discount.
The penalties will be $70 under the new ordinance. If you pay within 15 days, you will receive a 50% discount to $35.
Increased penalties and fees will generate almost $2 million in additional income for the college town.
