Budget History

Program Description

The Parking Department manages the parking system in PROVINCETOWN by coordinating a number of functions including on and off street parking facilities, parking meters and kiosks, permits, regulations and enforcement. Provincetown has two manned parking lots, and eleven on-street Web based Application parking zones representing 1109 revenue producing parking spaces. The Department serves thousands of residents and visitors each season.

Budget Statement

Personnel expenditures are payrolls used to pay the employees of the Parking Department and the seasonal employees at the parking lots. Operating expenditures are used to pay any bills incurred during the season for supplies, energy, and maintenance. The Department is going through a transitional phase as new systems are installed, and responsibilities are restructured. The FY24 Budget reflects these initial changes to staff and operations. The Budget expenditure for personnel covers the ever-rising cost of living to adequately compensate the staff for their hard work and dedication for the coming season. The $247,296 covers placing staff in the four booths to operate 16 hours of the day for 184 days to manage the parking season. The $50,086 covers the middle management's need to organize and help the staff with most of the issues that may arise during the season. The previous years have seen more staff need to take time off to recover from various illnesses; as such, we need to be able to compensate those staff that goes above and beyond the call of action with the $10,000 overtime Budget.

Major Accomplishments for 2022

  • On street parking change to both a Web base system and kiosk service for 12 locations

FY 2024 Objectives

FY 2023 objectives focused on converting old systems to updated versions to improve constant effectiveness to provide better Town Goods and Services. The Department also looks to create new parking zones for visitors while implementing procedures to regulate current residential parking zones better. FY2024 will continue this mindset to streamline operations to be able to provide the best service to the community.
