Free Parking in Rye Starting Monday Until Christmas

Rye parking meter FREE

Rye City Council is expected to approve free parking in the lead-up to Christmas at its meeting this Wednesday.

The free parking appears to be retroactive as the resolution provides for "free parking for the period between December 18, 2017 and December 24, 2017 by waiving parking restrictions and parking fees in all downtown lots (Car Parks 1-5) and Purchase Street at the City’s expense".

The "City Council encourages residents to shop and dine downtown during the holiday season as buying locally helps all of us while strengthening our local economy," states the resolution. If this is true, one has to wonder why there are parking meters in the first place…
