The Phoenix City Council on Wednesday, Sept. 15, is slated to consider giving park rangers the authority to issue citations to park users who fail to pay a new $2-a-day fee for parking at South Mountain's Pima Canyon Trailhead.

In July, the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Board voted to impose a $2-a-day fee for parking at the Pima Canyon lot, 9904 S. 48th St., near the eastern tip of South Mountain, as well as for several other parks around Phoenix.

If the council approves the measure, park users would have a six-month grace period before park rangers begin enforcement, officials have said. Then, beginning next March, those who fail to pay the fee could receive a ticket carrying a $50 penalty for each violation.

The fees are meant to ease Phoenix's budget woes and prevent service cuts, officials have said. The council's meeting is slated for 3 p.m. in Council Chambers, 200 W. Jefferson St., in downtown Phoenix.
