"Smart" Parking Meter Installation Almost Complete

Installation of new parking meters that accept credit cards, provide real-time parking availability information through an online application and have pay by phone capability will be completed within the next two weeks.

Parking Service’s new credit-card-enabled models, manufactured by Duncan Solutions, allow customers to pay with coins, credit cards, or cell phones and are located throughout the downtown core. They were installed on time and within budget.

The pay by phone feature is anticipated to be launched in December of this year.
