Capitol Place parking vendor to give overpayment refunds

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Feb 13, 2014

~~<p><strong>Question: </strong>I thought that because Capitol Place was built on a municipal parking lot, it was required to charge municipal rates for public parking. However, the parking vendor installed a machine to collect parking fees which neither accepts coins nor gives change. As a result, if you are paying in cash, you have to pay more than the posted rates. Given the previous agreement to limit rates, it seems unfair to require those using the lot to use a credit card or pay more than the posted rates.</p>
<p><strong>Answer:</strong> You&rsquo;re correct.</p>
