Norristown officials are paying more than $281,000 for 20 parking kiosks that will take payments for about 60 spaces that are now metered, as well as 70 new spaces, near the Montgomery County Courthouse. They will initially take coins and currency, but in the future they will take credit cards. Officials hope the kiosks will bring in about a quarter of a million dollars a year in new parking revenue. They plan to move the existing meters, which are only a few years old, to the West Marshall Street shopping district.
