ST. LOUIS , MISSOURI ( KTVI )The City of St. Louis Treasurer’s Office is now offering a smartphone application to pay for parking meters. Parkmobile is currently being rolled out in downtown St. Louis and is expected to be up and running citywide by the end of this year.

Parkmobile was chosen to be the mobile payment provider for parking in St. Louis after a six month field test of various parking technologies. Parkmobile is available for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone and can be downloaded from your phone’s app store by searching for Parkmobile.

“Our goal is to create a modern, customer friendly parking operation for the City of St. Louis,” said Tishaura O. Jones, Treasurer of the City of St. Louis. “We are pleased that Parkmobile is part of our team as we work to move St. Louis parking into the 21st century.”

Parkmobile’s mobile payment system is very simple and easy to use. After setting up their account, customers can immediately start using the system with their registered mobile phone.

Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using a wireless handheld device, so customers should not worry if the meter does not change. Mobile app users may also choose to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking session. The two-hour time limit on meters still applies, and Parkmobile will not allow users to purchase more time than allotted by the meters. Parking enforcement hours are Monday-Saturday from 8am to 7pm.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
