Wrexham Council pays £164,000 in broken parking meter costs

Wrexham Council is expected to pay out £164,000 in lost income over broken and vandalised pay and display parking meters.

The local authority highlighted the outstanding payment as it looked to balance its books by the end of the 2016-17 financial year.

The council said that some of the parking display machines had been targeted by thieves and that more secure meters are now due to be installed which will be able to accept card payment and payment via mobile phones.

The authority has also agreed to provide free town centre parking on council-run car parks throughout December for Christmas shoppers.
