                The board voted unanimously to accept the ordinance changes that change the two-hour parking limit from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. While the two-hour parking limit has only traditionally been enforced Monday through Friday, the ordinance already on the books allows for Saturday enforcement as well. Standard Parking, a Chicago-based company hired by the city this summer to manage the parking downtown, will be enforcing the two-hour limit on Saturdays. (September 19, 2012, Page 1)
