GRETNA, Louisiana — Beginning March 1, drivers will have to pay to park in downtown Gretna.
The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/1eXnaiK ) the City Council signed off on the final regulations for Park Gretna on Wednesday.
On-street parking will cost 25 cents for 15 minutes and $1 per hour, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Standard Parking, which is running the program, will handle enforcement and adjudication of violations.
Mayor Belinda Constant says the council also amended its ordinance governing fines and fees. Among the changes was a $500 fine for parking in a handicapped space and $90 for immobilization or "boot" fee. The cost of towing and storage was eliminated from the revised ordinance.
