When Cleveland Gives Away Public Parking, the Browns Profit

The Cleveland City Council this week approved a new ordinance that gives away city-owned parking for free for the Cleveland Browns to use—and charge for—during games. High cost of free parking indeed.

"The city of Cleveland will be letting the Browns use parking spaces during home games and the team will be able to turn around and charge big bucks for them," reports the 19 Action News Digital Team.

"The team will be leasing 1700 parking spaces west of the stadium….450 will be free, and the Browns will pay the city a total of about $7,000 per game for the rest of the spaces, $5 per spot for some and $7.50 for the others."

"But the team will be able to charge $20, $30 or $40 to fans."

"The city says the spaces in question are no longer needed for public use. Still, Councilman Polensek said he thinks the city is giving them away."
