Why Parking Permit Rates Need to Increase? Parking Services is an auxiliary operation and receives no direct funding from the State Parking Services is therefore self supporting Revenue comes from: permit sales, violation fees, meter collections, boot collections, special event collections and park & pay garage revenues Expenditures include: staff salaries, wages, operating costs, capital costs, maintenance costs, and debt service
