This was forwarded to me about the recently announced increases in parking rates on Campus:

“I know faculty senate loves parking issues; However, it seems to me that faculty senate is the only way there is push back on raising prices. When the university is providing 1.5% raises and then raising parking in some instances more than 10% something seems off. Add to that the amount of extra money they are making with tickets on the backs of students ”

“…At the end of the day, this won’t adversely affect me, but there are people who work here that this will be a bad change that will significantly impact them. Add to this the budget freeze over the last 3 years as well and the morale impact is potentially even higher”
