OCALA, Fla. – Downtown parking meters in Ocala will be temporarily suspended for system-upgrade maintenance starting Friday, according to the city.

Parking meter rates of 50 cents per hour will not be in effect during the suspension, though reports show the time limit of three hours per parking space — for most spaces — will still be enforced.
