Pay and Park system for tourism hotspots being investigated



Date January 8th 2019

 The Town of Drumheller is investigating new ways of generating revenue to reduce the burden on property tax payers.

In an effort to recover some of the costs associated with managing the washrooms, facilities and parking lots at the Hoo Doo's and the suspension bridge, Council asked administration to look at revenue alternatives.

A number of proposals were researched and presented to council at the council meeting on Monday January 7th. The proposal presented included A Park Plus payment system, a honesty box system and employing students to act as information guides as well as collecting parking fees.

"There are infrastructure costs associated with the 500,000 visitors to our valley, which are currently being borne by the Drumheller tax payer," outlined Greg Peters, Director of Protective Services. "Paying to park for visitors is one idea being discussed to recoup some of those costs."

Administration will be solidifying the suggestions from the council meeting last night and bringing back a recommendation to the February 11, 2019 Council meeting.
