SARATOGA SPRINGS —The installation of pay stations towards the implementation of a city garage parking program got underway this week. 

In its inaugural year, the seasonal program will run through Labor Day and in effect in three city owned parking garages - Walton/Woodlawn Parking Garage, Woodlawn Ave. Parking Garage, and Putnam St. Parking Garage, and three city surface parking lots – specifically located at Woodlawn Ave., Spring Street, and High Rock. 

To park in any of the six facilities, fees up to $2 per hour will be charged. An online portal where city residents and downtown business owners could apply for permits to park for free was created earlier this year. 

The City Council unanimously approved the plan in April, and the city anticipates nearly $1.6 million as first-year estimated revenue, with about $450,000 in expenses.
