Parking changes suggested at Faculty Staff meeting

Some changes may occur in the new faculty parking proposal if the Facilities Planning and Management Committee listens to feedback from UW-Madison faculty and staff.

At the Faculty Senate meeting Monday, Chancellor John Wiley suggested four changes to the new parking proposals. The changes include: lowering the permit fee for emeritus professors, lowering the cheapest proposed parking rates, consideration of a salary-based fee structure and a continuation of half-price permits for night permit-holders.

“With these concessions I think we?ve pretty much satisfied all the complaints I got, and there were many,” Wiley said.

The Chancellor said he got over 400 e-mails and phone calls from concerned faculty and staff regarding the current parking situation.

Other subjects at the meeting included a discussion on an amendment of legislation for collective bargaining and an update on campus network usage.

John Schaffer, who reported on Internet usage for the Information Technology Committee, said the music website Napster and similar sites account for two-thirds of network activity on campus. However, Schaffer said, even aside from this activity, the network is constantly clogged.
“Everyone?s been severely restrained with the network the way it?s been,” Schaffer said.
He also said computer break-ins are a major problem and that the committee is going to begin performing random security checks around campus.
