The City of Medford is waiving all parking tickets on Christmas Eve. It’s a program that’s run for the past couple of years in an effort to bring more people to downtown.
Diamond Parking employees spent the day handing out candy and spreading the word.
“It’s an effort. It’s Christmas Eve,” said Kristina Johnsen, community relations coordinator. “A lot of people are doing their last minute shopping, it helps the local business downtown and just a nice thing to do.”
The program is set to run on New Year’s Eve as well.
