City parking meters free through Wednesday

Posted: October 29, 2012

Parking will be free in Philadelphia through Wednesday morning, the city's parking authority announced Sunday.

In response to the coming storm, Philadelphia Parking Authority Executive Director Vince Fenerty said there will be no enforcement of meter and kiosk parking violations.

PPA kiosks have been disabled and wrapped in plastic for their protection.

PPA will still enforce and issue tickets for safety-related parking violations though, Fenerty said in a news release.

"We are pleased to join with Mayor Michael Nutter during the current severe weather emergency to do our part to help ensure the safety of all city residents," Fenerty said in the release.
