For those who have become accustomed to game-show prizes, this may not hold the Bob Barker mystique.
But for those of us who constantly search among the crumbs and straw wrappers on our car floor for spare change, the latest news from the city should bring a little joy. Every day, two parking meters downtown will be free. Find one first and it's yours (all yours!).
FREE Parking Surprise: Is it your lucky day?
Beginning on Thursday, November 1 the City’s Parking System Enterprise will make two parking meters in the downtown area FREE every day. Where? Well, it’s a surprise! Staff will move the free parking meters to a new random location each morning by 9:00 a.m. Whoever happens to pull into that parking spot after 9:00 a.m. gets free parking while they shop, dine and enjoy downtown.
“This is an innovative idea for City government to bring a little fun to the downtown experience. It’s a simple way to brighten someone’s day and thank them for visiting downtown,” says Mayor Bach.
