A2: Parking Fines

WDIV-4, Detroit’s NBC affiliate, reports on the fact that parking fines are going up in Ann Arbor, starting July 1. Catheryn Snyder, who runs Perpetua-Boutique Organique on South Fourth Avenue, tells the WDIV reporter that the increase might hurt business: “Well, I think it’s ridiculous. I mean, we want businesses to survive in downtown Ann Arbor and with all the parking and just everything, rent and all sorts of things, it makes it hard.” [Source]
