Following the recommendations from Governor John Carney and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Newark City Council approved an emergency ordinance aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19. The ordinance will be automatically sunset in 60 days unless extended by Council through normal ordinance procedure. The terms of the ordinance are:
The City will offer free parking in all municipal lots and metered spaces on Main Street will be free, but with a 15-minute time limit to be used to quickly pick up items and meals from local retailers and restaurants. The 15-minute time limit will be enforced by the City to ensure parking availability.
