Paying for parking in Nelson is about to see some updates

A new way to pay for parking is coming to Nelson later this month.

A parking 'pay station' or kiosk will be installed at the corner of Baker and Hall Street for stalls on the 400 and 500 blocks of Hall. 

On top of accepting coins, the machine will take debit and credit cards, and may be able to connect to your cell phone in the future.

City manager Kevin Cormack says the new kiosk makes things easier for everyone.

There will also be changes to the City's handicap parking regulations later this month. 

Handicap stalls will have two hour time restrictions and will be the only free parking stalls for those with a handicap decal.
