Cranbrook, BC (April 28, 2020) – Customers who lease parking spaces downtown Cranbrook will have their monthly fees suspended retroactive from April 1 until June 30, 2020, after a decision of Council at their regular meeting Monday.
The decision was made in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic and is to help reduce the financial burden on residents who work downtown and may have had their work hours reduced or have been laid off. The City will also be suspending the need for payment at all metered parking spots through the downtown for the same period.
The current cost of a monthly parking stall downtown is $35 plus tax per month and this decision of Council waives that fee temporarily.
“The Council is pleased to provide this relief and exemption for parking fees during this COVID-19 crisis,” says Mayor Lee Pratt. “We are deeply concerned for our business community and their employee’s success and well-being during this time. We are endeavoring to help where we are able to under the Legislation and Community Charter guidelines.”
