Town To Purchase Five New Parking Machines for Train Stations

Town officials on Tuesday voted in favor of entering two contracts with a Moorestown, N.J.-based company, worth nearly $50,000 combined, for new parking machines. The Parkeon machines—two for the Talmadge Hill Train Station lot ($19,790 total) and three for the Elm Street lot downtown ($29,440)—collect monies that then go into standalone parking funds. Specifically, Parking Superintendent Stacy Miltenberg told members of the Board of Selectmen at their regular meeting, funds collected at Elm Street go into a “Railroad Fund” that’s used maintain the 2.7-acre state-owned property around the tracks. Talmadge Hill is owned by the town, and revenues collected there go into a parking fund, she said in response to a question posed by Selectman Kit Devereaux. The machines themselves need replacement because they’ve “reached their lifespan,” Miltenberg said during the meeting, held at Town Hall.
