ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Atlantic City is trying to prevent price gouging at parking lots and garages.

The City Council on Wednesday introduced an ordinance that would increase maximum fines from $100 to $1,000 for not informing the city of parking fee increases at least 48 hours in advance. A court appearance would be mandatory.

The Press of Atlantic City (https://bit.ly/1rGRbbN ) reports Caesars and Bally’s were issued summonses after charging $50 to park during the free Blake Shelton beach concert in July.
