SHOPPERS will need to carry some extra change when parking on the street in Wangaratta’s central business district from Thursday.
The hourly rate charged through the 55 ticket machines in the CBD will rise simultaneously with the opening of the new three deck car park at the Co-Store on Thursday morning.
With the new car park charging $1 an hour, the on-street fee will double from 50 cents per hour to make CBD parking charges uniform.
Rural City of Wangaratta staff will manually change information chips in the ticket machines on Wednesday to reflect the change.
As each machine is altered on Wednesday, it will be covered by RCoW staff, signalling it is temporarily out of order.
All machines will be reconfigured and ready to charge the $1 fee from Thursday morning.
