The 3-hour free parking seems confusing, how does it work?
Customers are allowed up to 3 hours of parking in the downtown business district. The 3-hour free parking is a total accumulation of time parked per day. You may move your car as many times as you wish. The 3-hour time limit is monitored by a parking control officer who records the parked vehicles every 1 1/2 hours. Vehicles monitored in more than two 1 1/2 hour periods in each day will be considered in violation.
I work downtown, can I purchase a permit to park close to work?
Parking permits may be purchased at City Hall, 200 E. 9th. They allow persons to park in designated areas for a maximum of 12 hours. At the time of purchase, a map will be issued to the permit holder detailing where permit parking is allowed. Parking permits cost: $15 for 3 months; $30 for 6 months; and $55 for 1 year.
