Monthly parking deductions from employee paychecks will continue to be suspended until Oct. 1. During this time, we will assess different payment options based on budget, parking usage patterns and the goal of offering parking equitably. We will continue to charge for daily parking. Those who are not currently enrolled for monthly parking deductions have the option to sign up for it and cancel prior to Sept. 10 without being charged. However, there is a nonrefundable $25 cost for the required Radio Frequency Identification hangtag.
