San Gabriel parking ticket fees have jumped by 51% in the past 10 years, World Journal reports. the amount charged in 2010/2011 fiscal year was more than $800,000, an increase of more than $300,000 over 10 years ago.
The Journal traces the rise in parking citation amounts to six years ago when the city outsourced its parking enforcement service to Inter-con Security Systems. San Gabriel Police Sergeant Rene Hernandez told the Source that the increase in citations is due to an increase in staffing. Before, only one officer was dedicated to parking enforcement while now three employees from Inter-con are assigned to it.
