Veterans get parking passes
War veterans will soon be able to pick up a free parking pass for use in Red Deer. Applications will be on hand at the Royal Canadian Legion or from the City of Red Deer website, starting on Tuesday. The passes will be available on March 1. On Nov. 30, city council approved free on-street parking for all veterans who display one of these passes. Veterans would still have to pay for parkade or parking lot fees. Pass users would also have to abide by parking signs and regulations, including the time limit specified on the coloured sticker on each meter.
