Soft McEuen Reopening Set Friday

If you plan to use the new parking garage at McEuen Park when a portion of it opens Friday, don't forget to get a parking receipt. “If you don't print one out and put it on your dash, you will probably get a ticket,” said Keith Erickson, a spokesman for the city. “The first two hours are still free, but you have to print out a receipt.” There is one digital parking kiosk at the west end of the parking garage, and if you put in two hours the receipt will print for free. Three hours costs $3, and each additional hour costs a dollar. “For now we only have one kiosk,” Erickson said. “But eventually there will be a total of four kiosks.” The lower parking lot behind City Hall is free all-day parking, and has several parking areas for vehicles with boat trailers, according to Erickson/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: How long before the taggers move in?
