CLEARWATER Parking will be free at Pinellas County parks on Fourth of July. Commissioners unanimously approved waiving the fees during a June 24 meeting.

Commissioner Norm Roche made the motion for free parking, which was quickly seconded by Commissioner Janet Long.

Roche wanted the free parking extended only to veterans. Since, it isnt possible to segregate one segment of the population due to the way parking fees are collected; he suggested that Independence Day parking be free for all.

Long agreed free parking was a good way to honor veterans and suggested the measure be extended to include Memorial Day as well.

I dont want to play Scrooge, and I understand the concept, but I would be more comfortable if this was an agenda item, Commissioner Ken Welch said.

He asked about the cost.

Interim County Administrator Mark Woodard said Fourth of July would be a high-attendance day with parking fee collections coming in at $80,000 to $100,000 at Fort De Soto alone.

No decision was made about parking fees on Memorial Day.
