Get ready to pay more a little more if you park downtown.

At this end of the month, the City Council is expected to vote on a major parking change.

The new ordinance would put almost all 1,300 downtown and Bricktown parking meters on the same automated system.

“Find the closest kiosk, go pay, enter your license plate number and move on to your destination. You don’t have to return to your vehicle,” says EMBARK’s Michael Scroggins.

So, no more stickers in the window and change for the meter, although a few coin operated meters will remain.

The price will be $2 an hour and each spot will have a two hour time limit.

Some spaces for electric vehicles will also be added.

If approved, the city hopes to have the work done by the end of the year.
