Galveston free parking comes to an end

GALVESTON, Texas (AP) -- The days of free parking for Galveston beach goers has come to an end.

The Galveston Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/15TW9pA) that beginning Saturday, visitors will have to pay $1 an hour or $8 a day to park along chunks of the seawall.

Police Chief Henry Porretto says on opening day officers will not issue $17 citations to violators, but instead let them off with a warning and a bit of information about the new parking policy.

The city is using a mobile-phone based system called PayByPhone to collect the money.

Porretto notes most places already charge for parking, and the 174-year-old city is late to the game.
   The city plans to use the revenue to pay for beach enhancements, which could include bathrooms and beautification projects.
