Reserving Parking Meters (Meter Bags)

Upon application approval, parking meters can be rented for the purpose of temporarily reserving meter spaces as a convenience during periods of unusual loading/unloading activities, repairs, remodeling and other like activities. A bag stating reserved parking is placed over the meter head(s).
