The Bend City Council has voted to stop its parking validation program downtown. City Manager Eric King says the City Council unanimously made the decision at its Council meeting this week. “There was a lot of abuse with employees and business owners providing own receipts for validation program. It was a nightmare to administer, and so the council decided to discontinue parking validation in its current form. We're looking for alternative ways to provide parking for shoppers downtown.” The validation program costs the City over $73,000 every year that King says that money is needed to maintain the parking garage and other downtown parking facilities. The last day for validation will be December 31st.
