Meter Bagging Process & Permit
Individuals may apply for meter bagging permits in order to reserve a portion of on-street parking on a short-term basis. Examples of uses which may require this include: weddings in the squares, moving from a downtown apartment or business, or a neighborhood event. To be permitted to bag a meter, an individual must apply for a city right-of-way permit.
