Nairobi County parking Fees are set to go up by 1st July this year this follows revenue loss witnessed by the county following last year’s reduction of parking fees from sh. 300 to sh. 200.
When reading 2019/2020 budget estimates at Nairobi County Assembly county Executive for finance Charles Kerich pointed out that the lower parking fees charges has also contributed to congestion of vehicles in the central business district and major roads in the city.
‘‘Mr. Speaker We shall review the parking fee charges and bring back to this assembly the financial bill for approval before July 1st.’’ Kerich Said.
Last year Sonko reduced parking fees a move he said would reduce corruption among parking attendants and also with an aim to improve compliance by the motorists.
Health sector reaped big in the Kerich’s Sh.35.2 Billion budget with 7.3 billion which is 21% of the total budget.
Inspectorate got sh. 2.2 billion budget while education got 2. with ksh. 400 million set aside for bursaries.
Ksh. 52 million will be used to renovate county houses in Kariobangi South which according to Kerich are in deplorable state.
In this year’s budget 32 % of total money allocated will be used in development while recurrent expenditure stand at 68%.
