Columbia council waives parking fees for Discover Columbia Week promotion

When: Columbia Borough Council meeting, Sept. 13.

What happened: Council members waived downtown parking fees for four days of the nine-day Discover Columbia Week shopping promotion, which runs from Sept. 23 to Oct.1.

Details: Participants can park free of charge on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 23 and 24, and Friday and Saturday, Sept. 30 and Oct. 1. The Columbia Merchants Association originally had asked for free parking for the entire festival.

Quotable: "I have a hard time authorizing a week of free parking at the end of September when most of the stuff is happening Fridays and Saturdays," borough President Heather Zink said. "I worry that the free parking is going to be used by others and not the people you're trying to attract."
