Parking Meter Changes Coming To Port

Meters will go from one hour to two hours in about a month.

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.

Appears the highly touted and convenient dash in-and-out "free ten minute" option has now been been eliminated. That'll raise some revenue -- in quarters and fines. The Borg giveth -- and taketh away more.

Too often it is hard to find parking on Main street and then who can actually do anything but quick errands in an hour. It will be nice to be able to visit some local shops and eat a meal without having to run back to the meter so I won't get a ticket.

Well they are being filmed on parking wars. So we need the drama. In the end getting the two hour meters is a win

inequitible application of the parking rules nothing more, this is what I pay big taxes for, to fiddle around while Rome burns

Typical, hypocritical Town "leadership" -- thermal paper receipts while touting its "green" in increasingly paperless world.
