Parking meters will go from a one-hour limit to a two-hour limit in about a month, once the existing meters are reprogrammed. The measure was approved during a Town of North Hempstead board vote Tuesday.
One woman voiced concerns about the parking changes, which also include amending parking monitoring hours to end at 5 p.m. rather than 6 p.m. The woman called it "unethical" to have certain parking restrictions in one area of Port Washington's business district and different rules elsehwere.
Councilwoman Dina DeGiorgio said that this resident is one of very few to oppose the measure. She also noted that there will probably be a minimal difference in revenue from tickets although she will be monitoring the situation.
