You'll now have to pay to park in downtown Galveston. You'll have to pay a $1.25 an hour Monday through Saturday between 9am and 6pm. Sundays are free.

Crews spent the summer installing the 95 solar powered meters between 20th and 25th Streets and Harborside Drive and Post Office Street.

Hurricane Ike destroyed 915 of Galveston's meters.
