Introduction of the Council Members.2.
Guest speaker: Buddy Knox ± Manager of Parking ServicesBuddy has been at DU for five years. When he took over parking it was a mess and hehas worked hard to straighten it out. In the last five years faculty and staff tickets have been cut by 50%. The decrease is due to consistent enforcement. Buddy can be reachedat Buddy.Knox@du.edu.
Receiving tickets for bringing a different car and forgetting your parking pass
If this happens, call Parking Services and they can exempt your license plate for the day so youwill not receive a ticket. They will do this for staff if this happens on occasion. This is not good
in the metered lots but only in your assigned parking lot. Another option is to park in your assigned lot and use your oops voucher if you do receive a ticket. Buddy hopes to have the barcode entry working for next year. Parking Services will make exceptions when necessary.
Renaming of lots
The lots were renamed last year, making it easier for guests coming to campus. Staff entry intothe lots will still be by swipe card and will remain the same.
Event parking ± If there are no spaces where does staff park?
 Parking tries to use lots with extra spots for events. If there are no parking spaces available inyour regular lot there will be a backup lot for staff. Parking Services sends out emails to thosethat park in the lots that will be affected by event parking. Parking sells permits for 95 percent of each lot. This allows for some flexibility with event parking.
Sliding scale for parking
There is not a sliding scale for parking. Each space costs the same to maintain and is no less thanother spaces. The University does not subsidize parking at all so it needs to be covered byfaculty, staff and students. There are lots that are less expensive to park in as an alternative to themore expensive lots.There was a concern raised why staff is paying for the parking structures. There are very fewuniversities that offer a sliding scale for parking to employees. DU dud a market rate surveyacross peer institutions and looked at the cost of parking per year. DU is in the bottom five percent in parking fees.
Communication issues
 There seems to be a communication issue with getting parking information out to faculty, staff and students. Inside the parking folder you receive each year there is a ³Did You Know´ areathat tells people what they need to know for their lot. The information is also on the ParkingServices website; however, the website can be a little hard to find the information on.
Carpooling will allow people on campus to share one permit between two cars. However, if bothcars are driven on a regular basis this is considered theft of service and becomes a HumanResources issue for the employees involved.
DU Shuttle ± Why does it no longer run during the day?
The Shuttle was created five years ago to be a safe ride across campus during the evening hours.The hours were then extended to daylight hours as well. There was also point to point service.The Provost¶s Office decided to stop the point-to-point service and running the shuttle duringdaylight hours and return it to its intended use as a safe ride across campus during eveninghours. The shuttle runs from 6p.m. to 2a.m.
Disability spaces parking violations and other offenses
The high cost of parking in a handicapped space without the proper credentials is set by the
