Skowhegan Selling Old Parking Meters 

Skowhegan is selling a piece of its history. The Maine city has put about 25 old parking meters up for sale at $25 per pop. That’s significantly more than the 10 cents the meters accepted for two hours of downtown parking 30 years ago. Town Manager John Doucette tells the Morning Sentinel, the aim was at first to sell the meters all together, but people kept asking if they could buy one or two, so selectmen agreed to sell them individually. Made in Oklahoma City with a red “expired” flag in a glass window, each meter has a little lock box at the bottom, where coins would land for later collection. But no keys are available and the lock mechanisms are corroded.
