ALBANY, N.Y. - Albany City Hall is reopen Tuesday after being closed Monday due to a plumbing and heating issues, just in time as the new residential parking permit system takes effect downtown.
The residential permit parking system is still scheduled to go into effect starting Tuesday, Jan. 15th. Residents can pick up their parking permits Tuesday at City Hall.
Motorists should know there are three designated residential parking zones within a three-quarter-mile radius of the Empire State Plaza. Between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. cars without a permit that are parked on these designated streets may do so for only two hours.
As a reminder, there is a one-month grace period during which violators will be issued warnings, not fines. After which, violators of this system are subject to a parking ticket with a $50 fine and a $15 surcharge.
Applications for City of Albany residential parking and more information are available here.
City Hall closed Monday when officials say the sewer backup occurred in a basement furnace room, leaving the building without heat. Another issue arose when an old valve on a city water main broke while workers were trying to fix City Hall's plumbing and heating problem.
