NORWALK - Business owners in Norwalk are up in arms over a city measure that will increase parking fees outside their storefronts by 25 percent.

Washington Street patrons say that allowing free parking in some areas and offsetting it by increasing charges in others is unfair to business owners, which has been the case since 2005, when in an effort to generate revenue the city eliminated meter fees along Wall Street and instead imposed a two-hour parking limit.
