KALAMAZOO--Meeting Feb. 29, the WMU Board of Trustees moved to increase rates for campus parking violations in more than a decade. New rates will be $15 for a parking meter violation and $25 for other types of parking violations.

The effective date of implementation will be later this year after the administration has had an opportunity to fully inform the campus community of the changes. This is the first time ticket rates have been increased since 1998.
