Prepayment for Parking

The digital parking meters allow you to pre-pay for time during non-enforcement hours without wasting your money. If you arive prior to 8:00 a.m., you can pay for parking and the meter will not start calculating your time until 8:00 a.m. This means if you had a bit too much fun and need to leave your vehicle downtown overnight, you can pre-pay for time and your meter won't start running until 8:00 a.m. the following morning. This gives you time to return the next morning and safely retrieve your vehicle.
