ST. CLOUD – Visitors to downtown St. Cloud will soon have the option to pay for metered parking using their smartphones.

The city has partnered with ParkMobile, creator of an app which allows drivers to make contactless parking payments from mobile devices. The app also allows users to keep track of how much time is left on the meter and extend parking sessions if necessary.
