The Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) says councils are working with communities to identify what services should be prioritised and how they should be funded.
Philip Gomm, from the RAC Foundation, told ITV News that some councils are making 'big money' from their car parks. He said the important thing is where the money goes, and if it is ploughed back in to transport and road maintenance.
Welsh local authorities made more than £8million in profit from their car parks in 2012/13, according to the RAC Foundation.
The organisation has published figures that show Cardiff Council had the biggest surplus at £2.6million.
Swansea Council's car parks raised £1.3million in profit and Gwynedd's made £800,000.
The numbers came from the official accounts that councils are legally obliged to provide to the Welsh Government each year.
