Much needed renovations to Northampton County's crumbling parking deck are imminent, perhaps only a week or two away. When it starts, and it's going to take four months, parking will be at a premium.
Exec John Stoffa had previously decided to close off 60 parking spots at a time. But he's learned the County can save $50,000 by closing off 120 spots. So guess what he's doing?
County officials have contacted nearby St. Anthony's and will be able to rent a lot from them for the four month duration. That will cost aroud $10,000, but the County will still save $40,000.
In the meantime, workers will be asked to carpool as much as possible.
