WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) - Paying to park is paying off for Wrightsville Beach.

The Lumina News is reporting the town gained an extra $170,000 in parking revenue in 2009 than in 2008.

The Wrightsville Beach parking manager is quoted as crediting the 18 new pay stations in town.

The Board of Almerman said they may consider changing the parking rates again this year.

They have public hearings about that issue tentatively scheduled for the end of February.
