<"They don't have change, so this will be a lot more convenient for them. You know all of that, the issue of the payment of that can all be done very quickly and easily.">
<"So when you get down here though, we want to make sure that there are again a number of possibilities and the convenience for the visitor. So that they can park easily and find places and it's just convenient for them to come down here to do business or recreate." >
SOMETHING YOU MIGHT NOT BE HAPPY ABOUT ... IT'LL COST YOU MORE TO PARK DOWNTOWN.
RIGHT NOW - A QUARTER BUYS YOU THIRTY MINUTES ... AND RATES ARE GOING TO GO UP. HOWEVER - THERE'S NO INFORMATION JUST YET, ON HOW MUCH.
