Members of the Indianapolis City-County Council Monday night introduced a proposal that would extend parking meter hours.

Right now free parking starts at 9 p.m., and earlier in some areas. And it’s entirely free on Sundays.

The proposal extends paying hours to 11 p.m. across the city, and creates a new period of enforcement from 3 to 9 p.m. on Sundays.

Democrat and Council Vice-President Zach Adamson, who introduced the proposal with Council President Vop Osili, says the details will probably change.

"I think we will see some extended hours," Adamson says. "To 11 o’clock, I’m not sure. I’m not sure that everyone is comfortable with Sunday either."

Adamson says the additional money could help fund various city projects, including an expanded street sweeping program.

The proposal was introduced and goes now to the Public Works Committee, where councillors will get a chance to make amendments and the public will get a chance to comment.
