York City will continue to enforce payment at certain parking meters in the downtown area, including areas with essential shopping and services.

Meters that are identified by a sign that states “parking enforced on Saturdays” are still being enforced, according to a news release. 

These meters are located on the following blocks: Market Street and Philadelphia Street from Pershing Avenue to Duke Street; and George Street and Beaver Street from King Street to Gay Avenue.
