URBANA, Ill. -- Faculty and staff at the University of Illinois are going to have to dig a little deeper to pay to park at school.


The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports that the school is raising parking-permit rates for faculty and staff in July by about 12.5 percent. It's the first increase since 2012 and the newspaper says the revenue generated will help pay for parking-related construction and maintenance of parking facilities.

The amount of the increase in the price of parking permits depends on the salary of the school employee. If, for example, an employee makes $50,000 a year, the rate will increase from $400 to $450 a year. Faculty and staff that earn more a year will pay more.

The fees are for virtual parking permits, which are enforced with license-plate-recognition technology.
