The Fayetteville City Council officially approved to reduce paid parking Monday, April 11, during a council meeting.
The new paid parking hours will be 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. instead of 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. This will be in effect Monday through Friday. Parking will remain free on Saturdays and Sundays.
The rates will remain the same, $1 per hour, and a maximum of $5 daily.
Lee Jernigan, city traffic engineer, told the council during a work session earlier this month that changing the times on the parking signs would cost about $8,000.
The new times will be effective and enforced on May 2.
