MACON, Ga. (AP) - Officials in Bibb County are considering installing parking meters in downtown Macon.

WMAZ-TV (https://on.wmaz.com/2eBZXvb ) reports that a proposal by the Macon-Bibb County Urban Development Authority seeks to install meters at marked parking spaces along the streets of downtown Macon.

According to the proposal, the revenue generated from the meters would pay for the project and would also go toward streetscape improvements. The meters would be monitored by a parking enforcement officer.

Downtown business owner Brian Ochoa says the meters can help free up parking spots, which could encourage more people to stop and eat downtown.
