Parking Fees On School Board Agenda Monday


Payson's school board could decide Monday to lower fees for parking permits at the high school.

The agenda lists discussion on clear guidelines for establishing a financial hardship, goals for spending permit revenues and the fee itself.

The matter arose at last month's board meeting after a parent reportedly asked the district what exactly constituted a hardship exemption. Superintendent Casey O'Brien told the board that the district's attorney advised tightening the definition.

A parent at that meeting said she considered the fee exorbitant, and requested the board reduce or eliminate it. She also said a promised parking lot attendant, financed through the fees, never materialized.
