It's only a matter of time until
Last night, the Hyattsville City Council unanimously approved the purchase of 112 parking meters to install
The total cost of the meters, purchased from Duncan Parking Technologies, runs more than $206,200, not including the $1,184 monthly service fees to keep the meters running.
The price also does not include installation costs. Though the meters are purchased, the city is still looking for an affordable contractor to install the meters.
The meters include five standalone multi-space parking meters for use in the soon-to-be rehabilitated parking lots along Hamilton and Farragut streets.
The remaining 107 parking meters are for individual spaces and will accept credit cards.
The Route 1 meters are expected to be in by the end of June.
Soon after, the city of Hyattsville will begin offering metered off-peak hours parking on Route 1 between Madison Street and Hamilton Street. The parking changes will reduce the number of available lanes from four to two, one each way.
There will be no parking on Route 1 between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays.
The new on street parking will provide 61 extra parking spaces in downtown Hyattsville.
