MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. - The City of Mount Vernon is offering free parking in five municipal lots this week for holiday shoppers.
Through Friday, the lots on South 5th, Gramatan and North 3rd avenues are free. Also free is the Roosevelt Square Parking Garage, as well as the parking garage in Fleetwood.
"We want consumers to shop local without having to worry about feeding meters while deciding on purchases or waiting on lines to pay for them,” said Deputy Parking Commissioner H. Gaylord Worrell. “We’re trying our best to work with local small business owners during this holiday shopping season."
Meters spaces in other lots, as well as parking on city streets, will remain as is.
