In November, it was announced that having to put quarters in the parking meters would not be suspended this year as it traditionally has been. This evening, however, Mayor Kamal Johnson announced on his Facebook page a change of heart.
Starting Monday December 14th I will be honoring the tradition of suspending parking meters for the remainder of the month of December. While our city continues to feel the damage of Covid-19 sometimes we will not be able to honor every tradition. However as your Mayor I do promise to always listen and make decisions I feel are best for the survival of our city. I apologize for the inconvenience caused and wish everyone a healthy and happy holidays [sic].
