Upgrades to downtown parking meters

Downtown Athens is getting new "solar-powered parking meters that accept credit cards and dollar bills."


The pay-and-display system also will cut down on streetside clutter, because each new machine can handle up to 10 parking spaces, [ADDA Executive Director Kathryn] Lookofsky said.

"It will make the sidewalks more walkable."
