The bank presented a check to the city that will cover the cost of downtown on-street parking (in two-hour increments) today and Friday.

Visitors to downtown Warren may have a little more change in their pockets goin’ jing-a-ling-a-ling — at least for the next couple days.

Representatives of ErieBank presented a check to the city on Wednesday that will cover on-street parking fees today and Friday. Meters will be covered with designated “Free Parking” bags. The bags allow free parking with a two-hour limit.

“We do this to support the local community and local businesses,” said Ashley McBride, ErieBank community office assistant manager.

The designated meters will be monitored for those who exceed the two-hour limit. The free parking also does not include the mid-town parking lot, according to Kassie Damcott, the city’s parking supervisor.

The bank has paid the two-day parking fees for at least the past five years on the weekend of the Christmas Parade.

The Warren County Christmas Parade and Walk is on Friday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
