Empty parking spaces mean empty pockets

 

 

December 9, 2002

Albany - If drivers don't start using the two new parking decks in downtown Albany, the county will lose big bucks. Dougherty County already lost about $6,300 on the west deck in the month since it opened.

Only 50% of the deck is full on the average day. And so far, start-up cost far out way the revenue.

Albany Tomorrow President Tommy Chatmon says it's too early to assume the deck won't start generating a profit. "Many people still think only government employees can park in the decks. Anyone can use the deck. I think, with time, more and more drivers will parked there," Tommy Chatmon, ATI President.

You can park in the new decks for free after 6:00PM each weeknight and all day on the weekends.
