Pay and Display

Pay and DisplayNew multi-space pay and display meters have been installed throughout downtown. Drivers need to find the nearest meter, pay by coin or credit/debit card and then go back and leave the receipt on the dash. 

The new meters DO NOT accept bills, only nickels, dimes, quarters, dollar coins, and credit cards to include Visa, MasterCard and Discover. Card users should allow around 8-10 seconds for their card to be approved by the bank. The meter will let you know as it performs each step; once approved, just hit the green add time button to get your desired amount of paid parking time, and then get your receipt.
