Meter bags cover parking meters and authorize the towing of any vehicle parked in front of a bagged meter unless that vehicle has a valid window hanger permit displayed.

Authorized Uses

Moving, tour bus, construction, or film shoot. For film shoots, you must get a permit from the Public Works Department for the film shoot first, then you may apply for meter bags. 


$25 per day Monday through Friday; $50 per day Saturday, Sunday and Holidays. Meter bag purchasers are given blue window hanger permits with the valid dates written on them. If you are putting a dumpster or Pod in the space, then you do not need a window hanger. The bags are enforced from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.


The Public Works Department will place your bag between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. If the targeted space is occupied, then the meter bag will be placed at the nearest available space. Meter bags are typically removed between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. the morning after their scheduled date has expired.
