The city manager’s office sent out the City Manager’s Newsletter last Friday. The full newsletter can be found by going to and clicking the “Newsletter” button. Here are some highlights:

Pay by phone with app

Never run back to the meter: Extend your parking if more time is needed

Never carry coins again: Pay with the app or at

Next time you park, just look for the green PayByPhone signs on the side of your parking meter or parking kiosk. Download the PayByPhone app, or visit to start parking.
