New multi-space municipal parking meters were recently installed in four shopper parking lots in the Port Washington Public Parking District.
Sometimes referred to as “Muni-meters” – especially in New York City – the new meters are said to offer convenience and proof of payment while also reducing maintenance costs for the parking district, according to the .
Several neighboring village have also installed similar machines in municipal lots, allowing “classic” individualized meters to remain for on-street parking spots.
Parking fees remain at the .25 cent per hour rate.
Which leads to the question: have you used these new “Muni” meters? Are they a welcome replacement? Do you find them easy to use? Would you welcome them if they were installed in more places in the village? Tell us in the comments.
