Old Business

I. Price Increase for Permits, Meters & Citations - Subcommittee still gathering information and will present this at a later meeting.

New Business

I. University vehicles Parking in Regulated Spaces - This is in regards to university vehicles that belong to specific departments parking for extended periods in regulated parking lots (for example, general permit and reserve permit lots). It was requested that ticket writers monitor the situation and Public Safety report back at the next meeting.

II. Towing at University Place - This is in regards to towing vehicles for outstanding fines at University Place. Most of the classes are at night and there is some concern about safety if an individual’s vehicle is towed from campus after dark. An alternative was to boot the vehicle and a required fee paid to have the boot removed. This was carried over for additional input from the representatives at University Place.

III. Event Parking - On an ever increasing basis, departments who schedule events that require special parking have failed to make arrangements ahead of time and then request that citations be removed. A draft memo that was e-mailed to board members was not received. A copy will be mailed to each member before the next meeting. This will be placed back on the agenda.

IV. Official Business Pass Request - This is a request from the Parking Office for a change in procedures as to the way departments request Official Business Passes. As there were not enough members present to vote, this will be put back on the agenda for the next meeting. A copy of this proposal will also be mailed before the next meeting.

I. Report on Price Increases

The recommendations made at the March meeting by the Parking Board were approved by the Administration as submitted, with one exception. The proposal that permits be required and regulations enforced after 4:00 p.m. on the Pocatello campus was not approved.

II. Change in Official Business Pass Procedures

This was carried over from the previous meeting. The Board approved the new procedures as outlined. (A copy of the recommendations is attached.)

III. Towing at University Place

This is in regards to booting a vehicle that is in violation of the parking regulations rather than removing it from campus. It was decided to hold this item over until the first meeting in the Fall.

New Business

I. Request to Consider a Permit Purchased For a Vehicle be Valid on a Motorcycle

This was addressed at the request of an individual at University Place. Connie Gomez explained that this individual felt that because a regular permit can be used on more than one vehicle that it should also be valid on a motorcycle. It was discussed and determined that because the motorcycle permit is only $15.00 for the entire year and a hang tag can not be successfully displayed on a motorcycle that no changes would be made.

II. Hold Back Reserved Lot Permits for New Faculty/Staff

Every year there are a few new faculty/staff members who arrive on campus for the first time in late summer. These individuals are then unable to purchase a reserved lot permit because they are sold out. It was requested that the 5% oversell that is allowed for each reserve lot be held for new faculty/staff. The Board recommended and approved that any oversell be held until September 1st for new faculty/staff that arrive on campus after July 1st for the upcoming academic year.

III. Request for Change in Shape of Hang Tag Currently Being Used

This was at the request of an individual who objected to the size of the hang tag currently being used. He requested that it be no bigger than the back of the rear view mirror. It was discussed and determine that no changes would be made as the smaller tag would not be visible on the many vehicles that have the dark tint across the top of the wind shield.

IV. Request for designated parking space for KISU Radio Director

This was discussed with a vote taken and the request denied.

I. Report on Rendezvous Parking: Held over for next meeting

New Business

I. Charge for reserving area and/or issuing passes for special events

Mike Echanis, TRIO had filed for an exception regarding these charges. As he was not present this item was held over until the next meeting.

II. Additional disabled parking spaces in R-01

This was put on the agenda at the request of Jackie Maughan who was not present at the meeting. Steve Chatterton reported on the number of disabled parking spaces in the R-01 lot. That lot is in compliance with the ADA required number of spaces. There are a total of 227 spaces with ADA requiring that seven of that total be disabled. Currently there are 10 disabled spaces in that lot. The board requested this be held over with another invitation for Jackie to provide additional input as to her concerns. She will be advised of the date and time of next meeting.

III. Parking for students with limited mobility

Marty Hughes expressed his concern for the lack of convenient parking for those students who have limited mobility but do not qualify for a disabled parking permit. This is a concern, especially during the time when roads and walks are icy. The ADA bus will pick them up, however during inclement weather there is no convenient shelter. It was determined that this was an issue that the ADA office needed to address with Facilities Service’ Planning Department.

IV. Vehicle permits on motorcycles

This issued was presented by Robin Stanger who requested that permits purchased for vehicles be allowed to be used on motorcycles and that they then be allowed to park in regular vehicle spaces. The individuals in attendance at University Place also expressed a concern about the current price for a motorcycle permit.

Martin Hackworth explained that the fee for permits had been set based on research into what other universities were charging and the increase in overall costs relating to parking lot maintenance.

The issue of allowing hang tags to be used on motorcycles was discussed with the major concern being the problem of theft of the permits. The parking office will investigate options for securing the hang tag to the motorcycle and report back at the next meeting.

The request regarding motorcycles being allowed to use regular vehicle spaces was addressed. A concern was expressed that it was a waste of space, and that almost all designated motorcycle parking is in a location closer to most buildings and uses space that can not be used by regular vehicles. No recommendation was made regarding this issue. There was some concern that there is not adequate designated parking for motorcycles at University Place. Steve Chatterton and Martin Hackworth will review the situation and report back at the next meeting.
