MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Parking meter enforcement is resuming in Milwaukee on June 15.
All parking enforcement was suspended on March 19 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Milwaukee Department of Public Works says as more and more businesses are reopening, the need for turnover in parking spots is growing.
DPW says the MKE Park app was recently updated further promoting contactless parking. The app allows people to pay and park without ever touching a meter.
“Touching things nowadays, with the pandemic, is a safety concern for a number of people so this is definitely a great option for people,” Milwaukee DPW spokesperson Brian DeNeve said.
Timed non-metered parking or daytime parking and night parking restrictions are not yet being enforced.
