Downtown Billings’ 10-hour parking meters– removed this week from Fourth Avenue North– are the first of what will be the complete removal of all 68 10-hour meters, according to the Billings Parking Division.  Parking Manager Tracy Scott said Thursday that 10-hour parking signs are being erected in place of the meters as they’re removed.

 

 

Downtown parking is enforced Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., but parking is free evenings and weekends.  Crews are currently busy with snow removal, but 10-hour meters slated for removal are on Third Avenue North, on North 30th Street, along North Broadway, on North 25th Street and along South 28th Street.  The Parking Division is set to seek bids on 150 smart meters, which are expected to be installed in the spring or summer.  Ten-hour parking permits are available through the Downtown Billings Alliance for $20 per month by calling 406-294-5060.
