Information to assist you in preparation for your first day:



Employer-provided, free parking is accessed on the 400 block of Mulberry Street. Pull up to the right-hand lane to enter. Park in any lined space that is not marked reserved or with a number. Please do not make a space where one does not already exist. Hang the parking tag from your rear-view mirror, or you risk a fine or being towed. (Replacement tags are available from Human Resources.)


Hollidaysburg Borough has parking meters on most of the streets that immediately surround the Courthouse and monitors them faithfully between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Read the instructions on each meter to avoid a ticket. Note that a two-hour limit, for example, may not mean that you can feed the meter after two hours and keep the space. Tires could be chalked, so you may have to move your vehicle after two hours.


Spaces without meters and without signs that indicate they are permitted spaces are available on Mulberry Street, Spruce Street, Union Street, Walnut Street, and Wayne Street. Please be considerate of the residents of Hollidaysburg Borough who also use these spaces in front of their homes.
