We would like to congratulate and thank the the Mayor and the Village Trustees who voted to suspend metered parking in the village parking lots during the winter months from Nov 15th 2010 till March 15th 2011. This really is a win win situation for the merchants and visitors to Port Jefferson. Although village officials don’t like to admit it, metered parking and the resulting tickets have put Port Jefferson merchants at a competitive disadvantage with other villages and towns on Long Island. For the next 4 months visitors, merchants and employees to our stores and restaurants will not have to pay the meters or worry about getting a parking ticket when they are shopping , eating or working at our at our local shops and restaurants.
Suspending metered parking really is an early Holiday gift to everyone who works in or visits Port Jefferson. Way to go!
FYI: Although metered parking in the parking lots will be suspended this winter, please remember that all parking on the street is enforced year round! Read those signs carefully when parking on the street! Street parking is stictly enforced.
