No more free parking in county garage

Posted: Updated:

Cobb County leaders are tackling one of the most emotional hot button issues in suburbia. 

Tuesday night a unanimous vote of the county commission agreed to change the parking fees in the county-owned parking decks in Marietta.

The growing population is making a once normal nuisance a very big deal.

Two Marietta parking officers work full-time enforcing the free for 2 hours limit. There is a $25 fine if you overstay, $50 for the second offense.

Two dozen restaurants on the square are doing big business with free county subsidized parking after 5 p.m.. That is going to change February 1, 2018.
