Price of sustainable parking hangers hasn’t increased

Question

Why did the price of sustainable parking hangers go up? The 2016 hangers are $264, up from $242 in 2015. I did not receive an email notification of the price increase. Since they are handled through payroll deduction, I didn’t notice until now, which is not appreciated. How is this increase justified?

Previous budget documents suggested decal costs were supposed to remain the same: https://www.uaf.edu/finserv/omb/budget-planning/UAF_FY16_Reduction_Summary_July2015-WEB-POSTED-VERSION.pdf

Response

The price of an annual permit purchased in September — $264 — has not increased in recent years.  It could be that you previously purchased the permit in October, in which case the price would have been prorated. If you’d like to stop by or call parking at 474-7275, we can check for you.
