WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- If you want to park in one of the City of Wilmington's downtown decks, you have to pay 24 hours a day.
Over the weekend, new machines went online to let drivers swipe their credit card at the two parking structures. It's part of an overall effort to begin collecting fees in city decks 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Drivers can make payments via credit card when there is no personnel on duty.
Park Wilmington staff will continue to collect fees after the bars close on Friday and Saturday nights and for major downtown events.
