The West Hollywood City Council extended several parking-related contracts during its Monday night meeting.
The city will pay $2 million per year for two more years to Serco, Inc. for parking enforcement services. Serco, which is based in Reston, Va., has had the contract with the city for the past 19 years. Parking tickets generate approximately $8 million of the city’s annual budget.
The city will pay $935,000 per year for two more years to Ampco System Parking to run the city-owned parking lots and parking decks. The Los Angeles-based Ampco has had the contract for the past 17 years.
The city will pay $188,000 to Beverly Hills to collect parking meter money for another year. The city began contracting with Beverly Hills for the service in 1996.
The city will pay $89,000 to Glendale for parking meter maintenance for another year. The city began contracting with Glendale for this service in 1995.
All these contracts were set to expire on June 30, the end of the fiscal year.
Oscar Delgado, the city’s director of public works, said it is easier to keep track of the various contracts by having them all expire at the end of the fiscal year.
