LEXINGTON, Ky. — The Lexington Parking Authority announced Friday morning that it will donate $11,600 of meter revenue equally split between the Bluegrass Community Foundation’s COVID-19 response funds and God’s Pantry.

“We were pleased to help both these wonderful organizations who provide so much to our community,” said Board Chair James Frazier.

This donation represents all revenue collected at meters during the last two weeks of May, including coins, cash, credit cards, and meters paid using the Pay by Phone app.

The Parking Authority plans to maintain its Curbside Pickup locations until further notice. These free, 15-minute spaces have proven helpful to downtown restaurants needing carry out and delivery options.
