ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Rate times for a free parking lot at the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport increased.
At Monday night's Aviation Commission meeting, commissioners decided on new rates for their long and short term parking lots.
They increased free parking at the long term parking lot from 30 minutes to an hour, once the short term lot has been built. Free parking will be 30 minutes, but staying longer could result in paying up to 12 dollars a day.
"So it'll be twelve dollars a day to leave your car in the short term, but we're only increasing the long term from $7.50 to $8.00. So that's only going up 50 cents a day. But we're introducing now a short term parking fee and that's going to be 12 dollars a day," said Yvette Aehle, Airport Director.
The rates will not go in effect until construction of the short term lot is complete in March.
