School bus knocks over parking meter on Main Street

A school bus in the morning on Tuesday, May 30 knocked over a Main Street Pay and Display parking meter, the Police Department and the city’s parking manager said.

The school bus was pulling away from the curb and its back end struck the meter, which was outside 540 Main St., according to the police and the city’s parking manager.

Brian Anderson, who manages the city’s paid-parking system, said the meter was damaged and a solar panel attached to the machine must be replaced.

Anderson said crews had to replace a small stretch of sidewalk where the meter was bolted down.

He estimated that between $3,500 and $4,000 in repairs are required.
