KAMLOOPS — Drivers will pay a little more to park downtown starting Saturday.

Rates will rise to $1.25 per hour for the first and second hours, and $2.50 for the third hour.

By-law Services Supervisor John Ramsay says the revenue will be siphoned into the downtown parking infrastructure fund.

"Parking is one component of a healthy and vital downtown," said Ramsay. "From the increase, it is projected that there will be approximately $250,000 per year that will be allocated to this fund."

Parking is free downtown for through January 1, before the new rates take effect Saturday morning at 9:00.
