UNIVERSITY CITY — The city will waive parking meter fees, including along Delmar Boulevard and its adjoining side streets, for up to six months effective immediately.
City Manager Gregory Rose told Mayor Terry Crow and the City Council that the move will cost the city about $150,000. The city will seek reimbursement from economic development retail sales tax funds.
“The purpose for the free parking is to assist small businesses in recovering from the economic devastation caused by the coronavirus,” Rose said. “Approval of this action is supported by the Loop Special Business District Board.”
