Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the city has recently purchased new parking kiosks from MacKay Meters, and will be installing them this spring in Everett Square.
Mayor Maria said, “These new parking kiosks will rid the city street scape of roads of meters, and replace them with just a few kiosks. They will also be much more convenient to residents by allowing them to pay with credit card or coins, and allow the city to efficiently manage parking. This will enhance the shopping and dining experience in Everett Square benefitting our small business community.”
“We really wanted to develop a pay station that was easy to use, fit the cityscape, and was environmentally green,” said James MacKay, VP of Sales at MacKay Meters.
Looking to the future, the DeMaria administration considers the parking kiosks to be a positive addition for Everett businesses. The new kiosks will operate in Pay-by-Plate mode, meaning the public enters their license plate number into the kiosk, then pay for the amount of time they want using coins or a credit card, providing drivers with sufficient time visiting shops and restaurants.
