High-tech device would serve leased parking spaces

On Tuesday, Fredericksburg City Council is expected to take a final vote on an ordinance to allow it to lease 40 parking spaces behind the Princess Anne Building at 904 Princess Anne St.

If approved, the city will use a single pay station to serve those spaces.

The pay station made by Digital Payment Technologies is known as the Luke II. It will offer patrons the options of paying by coins, paper currency, credit cards, smart cards or their cell phones.

The device also can send phone reminders to people when their time is about to expire so they can add money without leaving wherever they are in the city.
