The downtown parking meters are receiving mixed reviews from patrons. While some find the new system to be inconvenient for shoppers, others are applauding the move as a good way to finance capital improvements downtown, said Kelly Beede, the Town of Truckee parking coordinator.

Parking district volunteers have been handing out informational flyers and placing warning notes on vehicles parked downtown without meter receipts since Monday, but Beede said on Thursday that a decision has not been made as to when ticketing will begin or how much fines will cost.

There is a proposal to make the tickets $25, which is the same cost as the ticket for over-stayed parking in 2-hour limit spaces, according to Beede, but that number has not been finalized.
