The Metra lot has daily parking for $1.00 per day, where you pay using the automated pay boxes; and there are 53 permit parking spaces. Permits are sold quarterly at $60 per quarter for Jan-Feb-March and April-May-June and July-Aug-Sept and Oct-Nov-Dec. If you would like a permit, please mail your check for $60 to City of Lockport - Metra Permit Parking, 222 E. 9th Street, Lockport, IL 60441. Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope so we can mail you the permit, or in case we sell out of permits. If we sell out, we mail your check back. Please write "Metra Permit Parking" on the check as well. If we have more requests for permits than permits available, we hold a "lottery" to assign the permits. We will either mail back your permit or your check in that case. Also, please keep in mind, if you are leaving your car parked in the lot overnight, please contact the Police Department non-emergency at 815-838-2131. If you have any questions, you can contact Jennifer Fornaris in the Water Department at (815) 838-0549 x 2103.
