Parking in a city can pose a problem, especially when I don't carry much cash, never mind heavier coins! No worries, the city offers what they call "Park Smart cards"-preloaded in increments of your selection, after paying a one time,$5 fee. Like my Credit card, these contain a chip to be used to deduct from the card. I got a $20 card (paying $25 total with the aforementioned fee). Most parking is $1.25/hour. This should work for me.
