Downtown parking vouchers to be available starting Jan. 2.

City Seal

HENDERSON, Ky. – Parking ticket vouchers that will over-ride an overtime parking violation will be available to downtown businesses in good standing starting Tuesday, Jan. 2.

Each qualifying business will be issued five vouchers annually that can be used to negate a parking ticket during the calendar year issued. Vouchers can only be used for exceeding the two-hour parking limit.

A representative of the downtown business can sign for their allotment of vouchers during regular business hours at the Occupational License Office located on the second floor of the Henderson Municipal Center, 222 First St.

The business can attach a voucher to a $5 parking ticket and return it to the City in person or by mail within the designated timeframe for payment of the violation, which is five business days. Only one voucher may be used per parking ticket.

The City Board of Commissioners voted to institute the voucher program in November after discussion with community groups and private citizens about amending the downtown parking regulations. Downtown parking was the topic of a Commission work session this past fall.
