KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Kalamazoo City staff have been contracting with AMPCO, the company that provides downtown parking and enforcement, for 20 years, but that could soon change.

City Manager Ken Collard recently reviewed the contract and has learned the city could 200-thousand dollars annually by providing parking enforcement services themselves, adding that the money saved could be used to hire additional staff.  He says they will hire three part-time civilians to patrol neighborhoods looking for parking violators.

Current parking enforcement employees could possibly be hired to fill the city's openings.
