Important Snow Emergency Information for City Parking Garages:

Snow emergency parking rates at city garages (Museum Place and South Harbor) go into effect when the flashing blue snow emergency lights are activated throughout the city. Vehicles entering the garages for snow emergency parking before the blue lights are activated will be charged at the regular rate of 75 cents per hour until the vehicle is removed. Vehicles entering after the snow emergency lights are activated will be charged $5.00 per 24 hours or any portion of 24 hours. Thank you.
