Dig Deep: Game Day Parking Rates Increase For Browns Fans

Posted by Web Staff - Email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - It's another blow for Cleveland Browns fans. County parking lot rates were approved to increase in September on game-day only.

The Huntington garage at Ontario Street and Lakeside Avenue will increase to $25 and the Courthouse Square lot at Lakeside and West 3rd will also jump to $25 bucks this season.

AMPCO parking lots neighboring the stadium were already set at $25.00 so there is no sticker shock there.

The good news, Cleveland's municipal a.k.a. the "Muni-Lot" is still $15 bucks.

The rate increase was issued because the county has a $27-million-dollar budget deficit to patch.
