CAPE MAY – At its Tuesday, Dec. 5, meeting Cape May City Council authorized the city’s qualified purchasing agent to establish a competitive procurement for parking management services. The goal, Mayor Zack Mullock said after the meeting, is to get better pricing than the city now pays for use of the ParkMobile app. The city is offering a contract for up to five years as an incentive to bidders.
Mullock said city officials are aware of the difficulties that were associated with the Stone Harbor implementation of ParkMobile this year but saw few comparisons. In Cape May, the city already has ParkMobile and is familiar with its operation, he said.
Mullock added that the meters will be around for a few more years. “We know we have people for whom a smartphone app is a challenge,” he said.
