No meter fees in borough during holiday season


Drivers who park in metered spaces in North Arlington will be spared from paying, from Thanksgiving through the New Year’s Day weekend, thanks to a holiday amnesty approved by Mayor Joseph Bianchi and the Borough Council.

“This is designed to make the holidays a bit more convenient for our residents and visitors while helping local businesses attract more customers,” Bianchi said.

However, while motorists will not have to feed the meters, the borough’s two-hour limit on parking will continue to be enforced, the mayor said.

The borough will place bags over all meter heads as a reminder to drivers that parking is free during the holiday period. Meter fees will resume Monday, Jan. 4, 2016.

All parking meter locations are part of the amnesty program, including Ridge Road and all municipal parking lots.
