Credit card/coin parking meters made their debut in St. Cloud this week when they were installed outside of the Stearns County Administration Center. Motorists can now pay for their parking using coins or credit/debit cards. The meters replaced the other 31 coin-only meters in that parking lot. The new meters are a pilot project and will likely be used to replace the old-fashioned meters in the city, meters that are quickly wearing out and for which replacement parts are difficult to fin. The cost of parking in a metered spot will remain the same – 50 cents for one hour of time.
