Dear MAC,

Who is responsible for checking that the parking meters in the city are accurate? I know of at least one that is off by an hour over the course of 12 hours.


Dear Quarterless,

Thanks for the question! I checked with Cyndi Fields, who is the Meter Dept. Manager at the Crawfordsville Police Dept. and she cleared things up.

"There is a number on the meter and they need to call the error in and a check will be done," said Fields. "The check is done through the city."

Fields said that the city stays active throughout the year to try to prevent errors.

"There is routine maintenance done on the meters," said Fields. "That is done a couple times per year."

There you have it Quarterless. Give the number on the meter a call and the city will come check it out.
