Meanwhile, our very own ‘backbench cheerleader” squares off with BC Green party leader Andrew Weaver on ‘bringing down the government’
ITEM: City of Kamloops announces that 17 more stalls in the new parking lot on the old KDN property have been reserved for monthly renters, bringing the total to 107.
And while the public parking rate in the lot is only 75 cents an hour compared to $1.25 at the on-street kiosks, the City intends to reserve more of the parking lot spaces for monthly renters if there’s a demand.
Rationale being that the more monthly renters who use the new parking lot, the fewer will clog up on-street parking spaces downtown.
