Miami parking price hike held hostage for marinas rate raise

Oct 17, 2018

Commissioner Joe Carollo is holding up a final vote to raise parking rates until he’s assured Miami will hike fees at city marinas too.

For the second time this fall, commissioners deferred a vote Oct. 11 on raising parking rates, to Oct. 25. Mr. Carollo pushed for the delay as he pressured the administration to raise dockage fees at city-run Dinner Key Marina and Miamarina at Bayside.

Mr. Carollo cited rate differences at private vs. city marinas. He said private marinas are charging about 50% more for wet slip rentals than city-run marinas, and some have 60% higher rates for larger boats.
