PARKER, Colo. — When the Meadows at Meridian apartment complex in Parker first notified Robin Knowlton that her family's rent was going up nearly 10%, it did not even surprise her. But the next line in the lease renewal did."This is the package delivery fee," she said, pointing at a mandatory $17/month package delivery subscription for a company called Fetch. "There's no opting out, it's not voluntary. If you want to live here, they get your packages."Fetch markets itself as a solution for apartment complexes that are buried in package deliveries to help fight porch pirates and free up time.
