Mount Vernon is suspending enforcement of certain meters in some city lots in order to promote holiday shopping. “The city wants to encourage more people to do their holiday shop locally. Spending dollars in the city helps the local economy more than people realize and supports small business.
Effective Monday, December 16 through Tuesday, December 24, shoppers can park in the following Municipal Parking Lots between 8:00AM and 9:00 PM without getting ticketed:
- Lot 1 – South Fifth Avenue
- Lot 2 – Gramatan Avenue
- Lot 8 – North Third Avenue Parking Garage
- Lot 9 – Roosevelt Square Parking Garage
- Lot 16 – Fleetwood Parking Garage
Parking enforcement officers will still be making the rounds throughout the city. Motorists are reminded that meters still have to be fed if parking on streets.
