As expected, borough commissioners voted 3-0 Tuesday to advertise for sealed bids for the purchase of parking kiosks on Tanner Street and in municipal parking lots.

Sharon McCullough, borough administrator, said the project is expected to cost about $215,000. Bids must be submitted by 10 a.m. on July 21. Borough officials said previously they hope to purchase as many as 19 kiosks and plan to have them installed on Tanner Street by the end of summer. Cost estimates for each machine are as high as $12,000.

Commissioner Edward Borden said elected officials have reviewed the “visual impact” of kiosks and believes they will be “consistent with the atmosphere of our downtown.”

The kiosks would replace parking meters which are expensive to maintain.

While parking fees would not increase, the kiosks would prevent motorists from using time left on meters. They also would eliminate the current grace period that permits motorists to push a button a meter for 12 minutes of free time.
