Field Office Parking
(1) In General. Pursuant to ORS 276 .594, the Department of General Services ("General Services") has authority to establish charges for parking spaces located in the capitol area in the city of Salem. Excluding that area, the Department of Revenue ("the Department") will charge employees a parking fee for spaces the agency owns or controls through a direct lease, lease purchase, or installment purchase agreement. Control is defined as having the right to the spaces, to identify who may use the spaces, to post signs marking the spaces, and to charge for the spaces.
The rate charged will be determined on a pro rata basis of the Department's cost of acquiring the parking spaces. If the Department's cost cannot be determined, then the rate established by General Services for paid parking in the immediate vicinity of the office will be used. If there are no established General Services parking rates, then the Department's fee will be based on local market rates. Specifically, the parking fee charged by the Department will be an average of the rates charged for similar parking facilities in the immediate vicinity of the office, by private vendors. To encourage the use of alternative modes of transportation, a reduction to the parking fee, determined above, will be allowed for participants in car or van pools. The Department accepts the rate discount allowed by General Services for pool participants.
The Department Fiscal Section ("Fiscal") will monitor all office leases and determine if the department owns or controls parking spaces.
(2) Establishing parking procedures. The field office manager for each office will determine priorities for use of owned or controlled parking space. Priority will be given to state vehicles assigned to the office, visitors, the disabled, and parking for agency employees not stationed at the office. Unused spaces may be sublet to office employees. Fiscal will be notified of employees who may sublet parking spaces.
Fiscal will annually review and establish parking fees for spaces sublet to employees. Fiscal will also determine the process for payment and collection of parking fees from sublet parking spaces.
Fiscal will notify the union of proposed changes in parking rates pursuant to Article 15 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
