24 Hour News 8 web staff - GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) -- The Grand Haven City Council approved an amendment to a measure to charge for parking at a popular lot during certain weekends.
City council members voted to allow people with a mailing address of Grand Haven, Spring Lake or Ferrysburg to get permits to park for free at the Grand Haven City Beach lot.
Non-local drivers will now have to pay to park at the lot — located between the Grand Haven State Park and Bil Mar restaurant — on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays when weather is nice. Parking at the lot had previously been free.
Before Monday's amendment, only Grand Haven residents could get a pass at city hall to be exempt from paying the fee.
All proceeds collected this summer will go towards the fund to repair the Grand Haven pier's catwalk.
