The new operating hours were approved by the City Council in July 2008.  Since then, the Department has recalibrated and modernized the parking meters, according to  The next step in the procedure is to change the signs on the posts in accordance with the hours displayed inside the meters.

The new hours are commonly from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.  In areas that existing peak hour parking restrictions are active, customized signs will be ordered to exclude any peak hour restrictions from the new meter hours of operation.
