  • Permits do not guarantee a parking spot and are sold as a convenience and cost saving measure only.
  • Drivers must pay for parking from a ticket dispenser until such time as a permit has been issued and is displayed in the vehicle.
  • It is the drivers' responsibility to know when their permit expires and to arrange for a new permit so there is no break in coverage.
