Parking decks soon to be free in downtown Albany

December 28, 2004

Albany- You'll soon be able to park free in Albany's parking decks when you're downtown shopping or taking care of business.

The decks will be free beginning January 3.

A private company had a 3-year contract to manage the decks, but it's expiring and the city and county can save money by managing the decks themselves.

"So the east parking deck with 270 spaces and the west deck with 400 spaces keep the employee from parking on the streets and everywhere else and that leaves room for the public," said Dougherty County Administrator Richard Crowdis.

Employees who work in downtown government buildings will be requested to park on the second and third levels of both decks so the first level is open for the public.
