Jackson hospital wins permission to charge parking fees for disabled drivers
Jackson Health System won a waiver to county law Tuesday that will allow it to charge parking fees to drivers with disabled permits. Jackson CEO Carlos Migoya noted drivers with disabilities requiring a special vehicle — such as a car with a modified door or chair to allow use of a wheelchair — would still be granted free parking under state law. But for motorists with standard disabled-parking permits, they'll soon be paying the same parking fees as other visitors to the county-owned hospital system. Miami-Dade law requires all local government facilities to provide free parking for disabled motorists, but the commission has already exempted Miami International Airport and PortMiami from the rules amid accusations of drivers abusing the benefit.
