KTC to send objection to Department regarding increase in parking fines

Killarney Town Council is to send an objection to the Department of the Environment regarding the increase in parking fines from 19 to 40 Euro. The fines which were introduced yesterday, also include an increase to 80 Euro, the fine for parking in a disabled parking space, however the town council reiterated its support for this. Independant Cllr Michael Courtney says the 40 Euro fine will kill business in the town centre. He says the government should be ashamed.
