Parking Meters Are Up And Running In Bloomington

Last updated on Tuesday, July 30, 2013

(BLOOMINGTON) - The parking meters along Morton Street in Bloomington are up and running - again.

WFIU reports, the meters were turned on at 8 a.m. Friday after being shut down on July 8 after computer glitches charged customers incorrect amounts for the credit card convenience fee.

Bloomington Public Works Director Susie Johnson says the city needs a small test area to make sure that they do not have any more problems before the system goes citywide.

The next round of meters is scheduled to come online August 15.

Johnson says the city is doing its best to inform people about their parking options.

Johnson expects that the on-street parking meters will be utilized by people that need short-term parking.

She recommends people that need longer term parking downtown use the 4th Street and Walnut Street garages.

In total 1,470 parking meters are planned to be online before the end of the summer.
