Parking meter warning citations may or may not start today

Posted By on Mon, Mar 15, 2010 at 5:03 PM

There's nothing like the first sight of that little orange envelope stuck in your windshield wipers. Everyone can expect to see more of those when the city implements its new parking meter policy. But when does it start? Who knows, really.

The city's Web site says they will "begin issuing warning citations on Monday, March 18, with full enforcement to begin on March 27." First, Monday, March 18 isn't an actual date. Do they mean today, Monday, or the 18th, which is Thursday? And what exactly is a warning citation? Do we have to pay $20 if we get one? However, we should expect full enforcement of the policy on March 27, according to the site.

Here's the new policy. Start figuring out your new parking spots now:

Hours

Current: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

New: Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Rates

Current (Regular Two-Hour Meters): $1.25/hour

New (Regular Two-Hour Meters): $1.50/hour

Current (Long-Term Meters: Up to 10 Hours): $0.75/hour

New (Long-Term Meters: Up to 10 Hours): $1/hour
