I have owned a business Downtown for more than 33 years and for most of them have told folks over holiday weekends when not to feed the meters. I have always figured they could further support the city businesses by spending that money on lunch or some other item.
Well ... there was a nice surprise Monday for Veterans Day. I yelled to two ladies at the kiosk on Fourth Avenue that they need not feed the machine, at which point the one lady replied, "It says on the kiosk that today is free" -- a positive for this new technology and a nice occasional gift to city parking patrons.
