Library parking into rental lot when not in use

Turn the library's parking lots into pay lots at night and on Sundays' when they're closed.

  2. This seems like an additional idea to help generate money for the City. Charge less than the prevailing rates, a public reduced rate; I think would generate more interest.

  3. You could contract out the service so that they were responsible. Make sure that it is cost effective and not spending more than is brought in.

  4. Oversight of the parking garage at the Central library is contracted out and it is open when the library is closed.

  5. The city probably self-insures the first million or so of its liability exposure so insurance isn't a really huge deal. Set up self-pay boxes, and one or two people can go around town and make the collections each day, or contracting out is a reasonable way to go too.

  6. Could also make money selling the couple hundred city carpool parking spots under the freeway. If you charged the low end of market rate (10 - 12 a day)for the close to 100-200 empty spots, you'd make anywhere from $300,000 - 750,000 dollars a year.
