Program Description

  Parking Operations

The Parking Operations program has overall responsibility for the management of County-owned garages and lots with over 20,000 parking spaces, which represent at least a fifty percent market share of available parking spaces. This program has overall responsibility for the collection and processing of all parking revenue, including revenue from individual meters, automated pay stations, cashiered facilities, parking permits, and parking fines. The program also includes renovating and improving existing parking facilities to ensure the preservation and integrity of the parking system and its continued service to the public. Moreover, the program is responsible for the maintenance of parking facilities that includes: snow and ice removal; janitorial services; equipment maintenance for elevators, electrical systems, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems (HVAC); facility repairs for maintenance of damaged glass, asphalt, concrete, plumbing, painting, and space stripes; and grounds-keeping services. Furthermore, this program provides a comprehensive meter maintenance program to ensure all meter devices function properly. Augmenting the public safety mission of the Montgomery County Police Department, this program also provides contract security guard services for parking facilities to detect and report theft, vandalism, and threats to personal security.
