Parking fees may increase for students beginning in the fall semester.
According to ASG President Carolina Moreno, a proposition was brought up at the end of the last semester, but ASG rejected the idea because there was not enough time to notify students about the increase
“The reason why I am bringing this up now, is because I wouldn’t doubt the possibility of them trying to bring that increase back. So I want to think ahead and prepare this time around,” said Moreno.
The Board of Trustees will have another meeting at the end of April. If this proposal is voted on and passed, there will be a $5 increase, in effect next fall.
Purchasing a parking pass includes benefits such as a locksmith service, flat tire assistance, and an escort to your car if you need it.
Some students aren’t even aware of these benefits.
“No I just got one because I wanted parking for school…(students) should ask about any benefits besides parking,” said Margarita Arechiga Cervantez.
Despite the increase, student Jose Gonzales would still pay for the pass, just because of all the benefits.
“I was locked out of my car one time, and they actually help me out. So I totally don’t mind what-so-ever,” said Gonzales.
