One more (small) budget surprise
Citizens and activists seeking face time with legislators or other state government officials will soon have to pay more for the privilege.
Starting July 1st, the rates for all visitor parking facilities in Raleigh’s Downtown State Government Complex will double.
The rates will jump from $1 per hour to $2 per hour, and $2 an hour for each additional hour or portion there of.
Oh, and you might want to hang on to the ticket. The penalty for a lost ticket also will double to $16.
