Paid parking could soon come to more than just downtown Flagstaff.

As part of the city’s budget package, a paid parking system at the Flagstaff Pulliam Airport main parking lot was proposed.

In a presentation to the city council, Management Services Director Rick Tadder said the airport has had problems with non-airport users, such as commuters and students,  parking for extended periods of time and not leaving enough room for airport customers.

Along with the paid system, which would cost between $3 and $5 per day, the city would get a gated entry and exit system, and complete improvements and striping in the lot.

Interim City Manager Barbara Goodrich proposed hiring an airport business manager and two airport parking aides, which would be funded through the airport parking fees.
