Sarasota’s Parking Operations Division will relocate from the Sarasota Police Headquarters to the lobby of City Hall, 1565 First Street, starting Wednesday, Feb. 20. The current location will close at noon on Tuesday, Feb. 19 to begin the move.
City officials say the move — back to where the Parking Operations Division (POD) was once located — will make it more convenient for people to pay tickets and take care of other public-parking business.
“People are accustomed to doing business at City Hall,” said Parking Division Mark Lyons. “Having the POD in one centralized location downtown will make it easier for people to come in and take care of their parking business.”
Residents or tourists who would like to pay a parking citation or take care of other public parking matters can do at the new location from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.
As City Manager Tom Barwin settles into his fifth month on the job, he is assessing the location of some key functions and staff members, according to a City of Sarasota press release. With the parking division based in City Hall, it will be more conveniently located for members of the public as well as staff, according to the press release.
