Parking Fees

"You've got to be kidding, this is absolutely asinine," Hal Sandler said after he pulled his car up to the booth at Burbank Airport's central parking structure and handed the attendant his ticket. "Nope, that'll be $26," the attendant replied. Sandler, part-owner of a Sunland chemical manufacturing plant who flies in and out of Burbank Airport every week, was furious. He said he made overnight trips to San Francisco every week and knew quite well that parking in the main lot cost $8 a day.

Visitors used to parking at Oxnard State Beach Park for free will be in for an unpleasant surprise starting this weekend. Beginning Saturday, Oxnard will charge those who park on the premises 50 cents per hour or $3 for the full day. The money will be used to maintain the park and adjacent beach area. "It's cheaper than other beaches," said Oxnard Parks Supt. Michael Henderson. "We're just starting out, and we don't want to scare people away. I think it is lower than Ventura or Hueneme."

Since the parcel, known as the Act V parking lot, is leased to the city by the Irvine Co.

Parking rates are going up this fall at Candlestick Park. The Super Bowl champion San Francisco 49ers got most of what they wanted Thursday from the city's Recreation and Park Commission. The commission raised parking fees from $5 to $7 for most cars. The team wanted $8. The commission also established a new category of reserved parking at $12 per space. The 49ers will take prepaid reservations for 4,000 of the lot's 7,800 spaces. Fees for recreational vehicles will go from $15 to $25.

The City Council tonight will consider raising parking fees by $1 for most events at Anaheim Stadium. Under the proposal, fees for California Angels baseball games would go up from $5 to $6, while rates for football, concerts and motor sports events would rise from $6 to $7. If approved, the fee hike would generate net revenues of $348,000 for the 1995-96 budget. City officials say the higher fees are needed to offset increased operating and maintenance costs.

An ordinance allowing the fees went into effect last week, but the two electronic meters needed to monitor the parking spaces reserved for rail commuters are not ready to be installed, said Douglas Dumhart, a city management analyst.
