Main Street and its adjacent side streets host paid parking (meters). Paid parking is enforced from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Sundays are excluded from parking enforcement. If you decide to park in the metered parking areas, you can purchase a receipt for up to three hours of parking at a rate of fifty cents per hour.
