He pointed out that there is a potential of <br />$200,000 annually in parking fees, and we have to make a <br />determination on whether the parking will be free or whether we <br />want to recover some of the construction and maintenance costs by <br />charging fees. <br />Commissioner Eggert felt the Board should review an analysis <br />before making that decision. <br />Administrator Chandler confirmed that staff has not made a <br />recommendation as yet. <br />Commissioner Bird didn't feel the employees nor the jurists <br />should pay parking fees. However, the merchants in that area might <br />be willing to pay for that privilege. <br />The consensus was that staff was to proceed with bringing a <br />recommendation to the Courthouse Advisory Board. <br />MAY C 199 Bou 92 Face 396 <br />
