FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Fort Wayne's city council will decide Tuesday if the city should buy more parking meters that accept credits cards like the ones around the court house.

The meters are also solar powered and will alert parking enforcement officers when a car is still parked when the meter expires.

To pay for the new meters, the price to park will jump 50 cents to $1.25 an hour.

Tuesday's city council meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. inside Citizens Square.
