Declined cards used for 8 percent of parking charges over 47 days
Declined transactions at Aspen’s downtown parking meters accounted for 8.1 percent of total parking revenue between Sept. 5 and Oct. 22, according to city records.
Total declines amounted to $9,358.48 while total revenue was $115,240.05 during the 47-day period. New meters are expected to be installed at the end of November at a cost of about $600,000, according to city spokeswoman Mitzi Rapkin. In its latest attempt to thwart Aspen’s recent parking scam, the city has been blacklisting debit-card numbers as they come up declined at the end of the day.
