The Ann Arbor city council has approved the renewal of an agreement with the University of Michigan under which the city processes tickets and hears appeals for the parking tickets issued by the university. Action was taken by the council at its Dec. 2, 2013 meeting.
The current agreement expires on Dec. 31, 2013. The new contract would extend through Dec. 31, 2018, with an option for a three-year extension. Terms of the contract include reimbursement by the university to the city for the cost of a parking referee to hear appeals, as well as other administrative costs, which will amount to $20,373 monthly in 2014 and escalate thereafter. The city will also receive $1.92 per University of Michigan ticket issued as a pass-through charge to reimburse the city its third-party vendor costs.
This brief was filed from the city council’s chambers on the second floor of city hall, located at 301 E. Huron. A more detailed report will follow.
