​Changes Coming to the Public Parking Lot

Beginning November 27, the City Hall public parking lot will begin transferring to unmanned, automated booths. When you approach the automated entry gate, you will push a button and receive a ticket.  The ticket will have a barcode on it.  When you’re ready to leave, you’ll scan the barcode on the ticket at either the station outside the entry/exit doors or at the exit booths.  If you pay at the “Pay on Foot” station, you’ll have 15 minutes to get to your car and exit the lot.  If you receive a parking validation from City staff, the validation sticker will have a QR code to scan to exit the lot. If you would like to pay with cash, you must visit the Pay on Foot kiosk near the south entrance of City Hall. The kiosks at the exit gates only accept credit/debit cards.

Parking fees are as follows: 
- 30 minutes and under is free
- $1 for an hour
- $2 for 1.5 hours
- $3 for 2 hours
- $4 for 2.5 hours
- $5 for 3 hours​
- $6 for the whole day

If you have any questions, please check in with our information desk in the lobby on the first floor of City Hall.​
