Under the bill, the City would require a person purchasing time at a muni-meter to pay only up to the last full unit of time before the end of the paid parking period, thus preventing a person from having to pay beyond the mandatory paid parking time.

Int. No. 325
By Council Members Rodriguez and Yeger
A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to “rounding up” parking time.
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
Section 1. Subchapter 2 of chapter 1 of title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-167.5 to read as follows:
§19-167.5 “Rounding up” muni-meter time. Muni-meter time shall not be required to be purchased where the next unit of time would go beyond the time that muni-meter requirements end at a location, wherein the prior unit of purchased time shall be automatically rounded up and extend to the time that muni-meter requirements end, with the receipt displaying such end time; provided, however, this section shall not apply where no prior units of time have been purchased, or where the time shown on the muni-meter receipt would extend being the maximum time allowed to be purchased at such location as denoted by sign. For the purposes of this section, the term "muni-meter" shall mean an electronic parking meter that dispenses timed receipts that must be displayed in a conspicuous place on a vehicle's dashboard.
§ 2. This local law takes effect 90 days after it becomes law.
