Due to software requirements, approximately 40% of the City's parking meters lost the capability to process credit cards effective January 1, 2018. These meters stopped receiving technical support from the manufacturer because they reached their end-of-life. A request for proposals was issued and the City hopes to have new meters installed by the end of the year. Maps are provided to help identify areas where credit card enabled machines will be located.
