Signs removed: New parking rules take effect downtown

YAKIMA, Wash. -- New parking rules are in effect for downtown Yakima. You no longer have to pay the meter in those parking lots.

Work crews spent part of the day taking down old signs.

You are now allowed to park for free up to four hours. The city will put up new signs reminding you of the changes.

Yakima hopes it will attract more people downtown.

The meters are also being removed.
