Editor,

I agree with the Brian Nugent letter to the editor from a couple of days ago.

The $10 per hour fee to park at some of these Collingwood locations is much too high. Punitive, in fact.  Five dollars per hour would be reasonable and
acceptable.

I talked to one food vendor whose food truck is right beside the Collingwood grain silos in the big field -- seemed like good, tasty food for anyone hungry but I'm afraid those parking fees will deter visitors from staying very long.

This is just my honest opinion as a local, but you may have heard from others on this issue.
