Matt Fajack, vice chancellor for finance and administration, said there will be no impact for 20 months.
“We covered the revenues that we anticipated from night parking by cutting costs in administrative areas across the campus,” Fajack said in an email without specifying which areas were cut.
Streeter said the recent split between transportation and parking and DPS will also cause some delays due to the new positions that will need to be filled.
“It is going to be a while to get some new folks added on to finance and administration to handle the two distinct sections of parking and transportation as opposed to public safety, and then they will be looking to start meeting again,” he said.
Streeter also touched on the large response received by faculty regarding the potential night parking situation.
“We had about 400 folks who sent in emails of their feedback directly to us within two to three days,” he said. “This is something that affects faculty, staff, undergraduate and also postdoc students who have no formal representation.”
Charging fees for night parking in the future could also change the dynamic of the programs that take place on campus in the evening, he said.
“A lot of staff members pointed out that their departments plan activities because of the availability of parking in the evenings,” Streeter said. “If it has to happen, we want to find that equilibrium that will make it such that it doesn’t have such a big negative impact.”
