Pay-by-phone parking system goes citywide


The pay-by-phone parking system tested in the Phipps Lot last fall will be expanded to the entire downtown, following a decision by the Hudson City Council Monday night.

The council voted 4-2 to contract with Passport Parking to provide the service, and opted to go with a 40-cent per transaction fee instead of a monthly flat rate of $350.

Motorists will pay 25 cents of the transaction fee. The other 15 cents will be subtracted from the parking fees the city receives.
