Upcoming parking maintenance includes replacement of Pay & Display meters
June 15, 2018 –
Starting June 18, the City of Kingston will replace 34 old parking Pay & Display meters as one of a number of upcoming parking maintenance efforts.
"The new Pay & Display meters have faster processing times and motion sensor lights, so that they light up when you approach them. These new meters will be more reliable and have a lot less downtime," says Marissa Mascaro, manager, parking services. The bulk of the work will take about three days (depending on weather).
Those parking in these areas will still need to purchase a pay and display ticket from the nearest operating machine. It will be close by as the 34 meters are being replaced one at a time. The Pay & Display meters along George, O'Kill, portions of Ontario, and Princess Street from Ontario to Division, have reached the end of their operational lives, due in part to heavy use and their proximity to the lake.
