Museum Lot No Longer Free … At All

I didn't intend to publish a coupla photos of myself today. But this one can be listed under the heading, "community service." I didn't realize that there's no longer free parking at the Independence Point parking lot until I pulled into the lot Saturday. I didn't want to pay $1 for the privilege of parking for 35-45 minutes in a nearly empty lot while my wife & I walked along the north shore, so I drove to the North Idaho Museum lot. We took our walk. When we returned, I noticed that the museum lot is now no longer free either. Diamond Parking is charging $1 for 0-1 hours, $2 for 1-2 hours, $3 for 2-3 hours, and a $1 per hour after that up to $8 for all day. Tickets for violators are $20. Later, I noticed the 3rd Street lot is still free for the first two hours.

Question: How often do you pay to park at the downtown lots?
