County institutes new operating hours for parking garage

RELEASE DATE: November 20, 2009

TAVARES — In an effort to reduce energy costs, Lake County will begin closing the public parking garage in downtown Tavares during weekday evenings, weekends and holidays.

The parking garage, which is located off Sinclair Avenue, will begin closing on Wednesday, Nov. 25, at 8 p.m. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the garage will reopen on Monday, Nov. 30, at 6 a.m.

Typical operating hours of the garage will be 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Friday and closed on weekends. The garage will have extended parking hours for downtown Tavares’ events and evening public meetings. New signage at the entrance and exit of the garage will indicate its operating hours.

According to County officials, closing the garage on weekday nights and weekends will save thousands of dollars in energy costs as the garage’s lights can be turned off.
