Birmingham suspends monthly parking pass fees
In response to the coronavirus crisis, the city of Birmingham has temporarily suspended monthly parking permit fees, effective April 1. The directive was given by the city commission on Monday, March 23, allowing city manager Joe Valentine to issue an executive order to suspend monthly parking permit payments, effective April 1, until the caronavirus crisis is over. Monthly permit holders will retain their monthly passes during the payment suspension period. Retailers, most offices, and restaurants, other than for take-out, are all currently closed, per executive order from Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, until at least April 13. Communication was emailed to all monthly permit holders, where the city had accurate email addresses, to inform them that no amounts are due until the restrictions per the executive order have been lifted. Currently, all on-street parking and hourly parking structure fees are suspended in downtown Birmingham.
