    Businesses can buy tokens from the Parking Management Office located on the 3rd floor of City Hall.  Tokens cost $0.60 per token, and the first token gives customers an hour of parking in the Clay Street Parking Deck (middle level) and an hour and forty-five minutes in the Mid-Town Parking Deck (top level) and Lot E.  Please contact us to purchase tokens or if you need more information.  The meter in Lot S does not accept tokens.
