The Fargo City Commission passed an increase for monthly parking rates in downtown Fargo starting February 1.
The increase will generate an estimated $43,000 or more a year if occupancy stays the same.
"We're talking modest rate increases between two and five dollars," says Fargo City Planner Joe Nigg.
The increase includes nine of the 11 city lots and ramps with one of them over the $2 to $5 range. That lot is at 2nd Avenue North, where a space rented for $52 a month and is being raised $6.
The mother who has been charged with negligent homicide in the case has been released from custody after posting bail Friday morning.
West Fargo investigators say 32-year-old Reanne Pederson snorted hydrocodone before breastfeeding her infant--falling asleep and suffocating him. Now, grandmother Lisa Miller says she's trying to heal after losing the grandson she only held once.
