New Parking Meter Rates Take Effect

City has received some calls from its residents about the recent increase in parking meter rates. 

In June of 1995, the rate was $0.10 per hour; the rate increased to $0.25 for one hour, fourteen years later in 2009.   After seven years with no increases, and based upon cost analysis, the City Council approved the rate increase from $0.25 to $0.50 per hour at its July 18, 2016 meeting.  Currently, the City is in the process of reprogramming its parking meters to reflect the new rate.


Staff will be bringing forward a recommendation for a Parking Study at the September 12, 2016 Committee of the Whole meeting.  That study may include a recommendation for automated meters with electronic payment options, which would address some residents’ concerns about the number of quarters needed to feed the meter.
