Parking Tips

1. To use the 15 Minutes FREE option when parking on-street downtown
Enter license plate number at the meter, then:
• choose #1 Purchase Ticket

2. If necessary, use a cell phone camera to take a photo of a license plate for reference. If you have a typo on the receipt, just place it on your dash to avoid a ticket.

3.  Add time to parking on the street at any on-street parking “meter” kiosks in town.
