Noho Parking Garage Still Malfunctions

(Northampton, MA) — The Northampton parking garage continues to be available free-of-charge because of a malfunction. The city is waiting for parts to arrive so it can fix the gate and money-collection system. The system has been on the fritz for more than three weeks, costing the city a-thousand-dollars-a-day. Central Services director Dave Pomerantz says the parts are on backorder from the Canadian company that initially sold them the equipment. He’s requesting a 300-thousand-dollar appropriation to replace the system completely.
