The Patchogue Village Board of Trustees approved an increase to the violation fee for 15-minute parking spaces to $150 at Monday's Village Board of Trustees meeting at Patchogue Village Hall.
The 15-minute rules will be in effect in these spaces from 6 a.m.-9 p.m.
The parking spaces that can only be used for 15 minutes at a time are labeled in a number of Village parking lots, most commonly located near stores where a customer would quickly pick up an item.
Dep. Mayor Jack Krieger said that the fines for parking violations will also be clearly labeled in the future.
"One of the things we're going to be doing once we get our parking situation figured out in the Village is to start posting fines on our signs," Krieger said.
The motion was unanimously approved by the trustees.
