Parking in Tyler’s downtown Fair Parking Garage soon will be free.

The city will soon take down the arms at the garage gate and eliminate the parking attendant, the Tyler City Council announced at its Wednesday meeting.

The city will, however, sell premium spaces on the ground floor near exits for $60 a month and reserved spaces for $30 a month.

The premium spaces will be marked with a name or company logo.

The city also will sell poster-sized ads on the interior walls of the garage for $250 for three months.

City officials hope the changes will increase the public’s usage of the parking garage.
