After a brief hiatus, it's back to paying for parking in Collingswood, as new kiosks are operational throughout the borough downtown, according to an announcement released by the borough today.
In August, the borough named Global Parking Solutions USA its new kiosk vendor at its monthly commissioners meeting.
"Hopefully we get back into a routine where people are simply upset that they’re paying for parking and not that the machines won’t take their money when they try to pay," Collingswood Mayor James Maley joked at the time.
Parking in the borough is enforced 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, at a rate of 50 cents per hour. There's one kiosk per block, and the devices accept cash and credit cards (at a $1 minimum).
Patrons are asked to either enter their license plate numbers or print a receipt to display on their curbside dashboard at the time they pay for parking.
Don't fret, however: you'll still get the month of December off, as the borough traditionally promotes its downtown shopping district with free parking.
