Emanuel's office says the higher fines would generate about $10 million as part of his effort to close the projected $339 million gap in the 2014 budget.

The proposal includes increasing the fine for parking illegally on streets being cleaned from $50 to $60. The fine for parking illegally during rush hour would climb from $60 to $100, from $100 to $110 for parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant, and from $200 to $250 for parking illegally in a disabled zone.

The price to impound towed vehicles would double to $20 a day for the first five days.

Emanuel will present his proposed budget Wednesday to the city council.
