The city came out 18 months ago, seeking a high performance solution to replace their obsolete single space parking meters. After a successful test of 50 machines, the city placed an order for 500 machines that will be installed between November 2004 and May 2005.
Even though there was fierce competition to win this large contract, Cale Systems, a subsidiary of Cale Access, was awarded the contract. The solution chosen is a solar powered MP104 MEMO Compact machine. The machine operates as a multi-space meter with a twist.
