MAYOR GANIM SUSPENDS PARKING METER FEES AND ENFORCEMENT, ENCOURAGES RESIDENTS TO EAT LOCAL, SHOP LOCAL IN BRIDGEPORT   

 
BRIDGEPORT, CT – Mayor Ganim reminds residents and visitors of Downtown Bridgeport that officials have put a hold on the collection of parking meter fees and will not enforce parking meter payments in an effort to support customers of local businesses and reenergize local economy in the City of Bridgeport. 
 
Mayor Ganim stated, “In order to give customers and businesses a break and some support in the Downtown area, government has stepped up on a local level to waive parking meters all summer.  It’ll be a financial hit for the City but nothing compared to the financial hit businesses have taken in trying to get through this pandemic.  At a time when everyone has added a list of safety precautions and regulations to their daily operations, we will continue to do what we can to remove any hurdles that may impact customer and business experiences.”
 
Parking fees and enforcement at meters will continue to be suspended through Labor Day.   Parking meter info can be found here, https://bridgeportct.gov/parkingmeters with a map of meter locations here: http://bridgeportparking.com/meter-location-map.pdf.
