Mayor Edwards Announces Free Parking During Holidays

Mayor Edwards has declared that there will be no charge to park within City parking lots during the month of December.  All other parking regulations will be in effect.

The free parking will not include the on-street meters in front of the Wood County Courthouse on Court Street, between North Summit and North Prospect, or the meters in the County Parking Lot.

Although the charge for parking will be removed during December in designated spaces, all other parking restrictions, such as the two-hour parking limit, parking in handicapped spaces, prohibition of on-street parking in the downtown from 3:00 – 5:00 am, and other regulations will continue to apply and will be enforced.

The Mayor encourages businesses, proprietors, and persons working in the downtown to share rides and park in long-term spaces to allow parking turnover for those shopping and/or dining in the downtown.
