Notice to City Vehicles
City vehicles normally left over the weekend will need to be parked on the upper level (uncovered) and sub-level area of the garage (one level below the administrative reserved parking area). There is threat of inclement weather over the weekend and the organizers of the show have met with City administration looking for assistance. Those City employees that normally park in the Iowa Avenue garage, please move cars before the end of business day on Friday so the show cars can start moving into place.
