MIDDLETOWN, R.I. (AP) - It could soon cost more to park at Middletown’s town beaches.

The Newport Daily News reports that the town’s proposed budget for the next fiscal year suggests raising the daily parking fees at Sachuest and Third beaches by $5, bringing the rate for patrons without stickers to $15 on weekdays and $25 on weekends and holidays.

The proposal would have no impact on the cost of seasonal parking stickers.

The money generated by the increase would be placed into a dedicated account to pay for improvements and equipment at the beaches. Based on last year’s figures, when the town brought in more than $1 million in beach parking fees, the proposed rate hikes would generate about $300,000 more per summer if approved by the Town Council.
