North Charleston Coliseum parking fee increases to $10

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The North Charleston City Council has approved to increase the parking cost at the North Charleston Coliseum.

Councilmembers voted Thursday night 6 to 5 to increase the parking fee from $5 to $10.

The new rate is expected to go in effect on March 1.

Last week, the city's finance committee approved the jump from 5 dollars to 7 dollars.

The rate hike comes as a way to help the city get enough money to maintain the lot.
