Chippewa Falls is looking to charge more for parking tickets.
The city’s police chief wants to raise the fines in Chippewa Falls to match those in Eau Claire, Altoona, and Rice Lake. The biggest increase would be for parking in a handicapped space. That’s currently a 50 dollar fine, the chief wants to raise that to 150 dollars. A parking ticket in a two hour zone is currently six dollars, the city wants to take that to nine dollars.
