ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – The hourly rates of Rochester's parking meters are set to increase in June.

The changes were approved by the City Council in a plan in 2019, according to a news release from Rochester Public Parking on Friday. Beginning June 1, the City says the following changes will go into effect:

  • 10-hour meters will increase from $0.40 to $0.50 per hour
  • 3-hour meters will increase from $1.20 to $1.50 per hour
  • 2-hour meters will increase from $1.40 to $2.50 per hour
  • 90-minute meters will increase from $1.20 to $2 per hour
  • 30-minute meters will increase from $1.40 to $1.50 per hour

The increase was initially supposed to go into effect in 2020, but this was postponed due to the pandemic.

“We understand that the last year has been incredibly difficult for our community,” Rochester Public Works Director Wendy Turri said in a news release. “To ease the strain on business and parking customers we suspend meter enforcement last summer and we were able to delay this increase by a year.”

The mobile payment service, ParkMobile, will also expand to include contactless payment options including Google Pay and a new app.
