Along with writing parking tickets, Spokane City Parking
Enforcement crews will be performing random acts of kindness during the
holiday season, plugging parking meters for some visitors to Downtown Spokane.
According to a City press release, every year City crews plug random parking meters starting
on Black Friday through New Year’s Day. It’s an effort
to encourage people to come downtown during the holiday season to celebrate and
support downtown businesses. In December 2013, parking enforcement officers
gave more than $400 worth of free parking to downtown visitors.
The City’s nine parking enforcement officers will operate
as ‘secret Santas’ during normal parking meter hours (8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday
through Saturday).
Money to plug parking meters is donated from the City’s
parking meter revenue funds.
