The City of Chico is making it a little easier on shoppers this holiday season by giving them a break at the meters downtown.
The city council voted 5-0 to approve a parking meter fee forgiveness program for four days this month.
The program will be implemented on the next three Friday’s and Monday before Christmas.
City officials estimate the program could cost the city in parking meter revenues and fines, which they are hoping the revenue loss could be offset by increased downtown shopping activity during those days.
