The Mill Valley Police Department has installed 30 new new solar powered parking meters that accept credit and debit cards.
The meters were installed on Tuesday and are working great, said police Community Services Officer Sheryl Patton. They're located on Throckmorton Ave. by the Depot Plaza and are part of a three-month pilot program where the city is renting them for $8 per meter. During the trial period the meters will be able to collect data on usage, which the city will then use to determine future parking needs in downtown.
"We've received several emails telling us that people are really liking the convenience," Patton said.
