SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane will see an overhaul in the parking meter system throughout the city. The Parking Enforcement Officers are out and Spokane Parking Services Team are in.
Downtown parking has charged all the way until 7 p.m. but as part of the change, the city will not be charging for parking after 5 p.m. This change will last until January 5th of the new year.
The city tells us if you do have questions about Downtown Spokane you should ask them. As part of the switch, all of the drivers had to complete tourism ambassador training with Visit Spokane and they will be working very close with downtown businesses.
When Mayor Condon was elected, he made a mission to improve customer service and that is what he says this will do.
The city will have information on their website as well as social media tools to enhance the number of services they can offer to people.
