Meter Bags – We are sending out this notice as a reminder that if you require the use of one or more metered parking spaces(s) in the City of Morgantown for any construction, repair, or any other need, you are required to attain a “meter bag” for each space. The Parking Authority has had a “meter bag” program in place for quite some time. If your activity is on a public street or right of way, a “right of way permit” (no charge) must be secured from the Engineering Department before you can bag on-street meters. The “meter bags” must be paid for in advance of your activity so that the spaces can be reserved appropriately.

As of April 18, 2022, the rates for Green Zone (High, Fayette, Walnut, Chancery Row, Foundry, and Chestnut) street parking spaces are:

Each space up to 10 hours @$21/day- after 2 weeks, the fee increases to $26/day (alternative for workers is parking in the garage @ .75¢/hr).

Each space for $24 hours @ $24/day – after 2 weeks fee increases to $30/day.

Roll-off Dumpster/storage sheds require 2 spaces 2 $48/day – after 2 weeks, the fee increases to $60/day.

All other streets and off-street spaces are:
Each space up to 10 hours @ $15/day – after 2 weeks, the fee increases to $21/day (alternative for workers is parking in the garages @ .75¢ hr).

Each space for 24 hours @ $18/day – after 2 weeks fee increases to $24/day.

Roll-off Dumpster/storage sheds require 2 spaces @ $36/day – after 2 weeks, the fee increases to $48/day.

Failure to follow this policy shall result in the enforcement of the appropriate city codes pertaining to expired meter violation (may receive one citation per hour) and citation for the time limit that space can be occupied (either 2-hour or10-hour). The Morgantown Parking Authority reserves the right to have all unauthorized equipment removed from the metered space if prior arrangements have not been made and/or all appropriate fees are not up to date.

If you have any questions and to make arrangements for the meter bag, please call our office at 304-284-7435(8 am – 5 pm Monday through Friday). I appreciate your cooperation.
