The total price which will be charged to you for your payment includes funds used to develop, maintain, enhance and expand the electronic payment service they are offering. The total amount will be shown on the payment site you will be directed to later in this process.

The City's Parking Meter inventory provides an efficient and economical means of generating turnover parking in business districts, parking districts and other areas of the City. The approximately 4,400 on-street meters demand an effective preventive maintenance plan, which includes constant upkeep, meter replacement and refurbishment.
The garages equipped with parking meters are Taylor, Arsenal Hill, Washington and Cannon. The meters in the Cannon Garage take coins, SmartCards, tokens and Credit Cards.
