    File: Public Service Center GaragePima County will make it easier to find a place to park on what is expected to be a busy Saturday, Nov. 11, in downtown Tucson by opening the Public Service Center Garage, 38 E. Alameda St., to accommodate large crowds expected for the Veterans Day Parade and the monthly “Second Saturdays” festival.
    “It’s important we help Southern Arizona honor all of those who serve in uniform,” County parking chief Jim Garrison said. “With Veterans Day on a weekend, more people will have the ability to attend the parade. We want them to stay and enjoy all the downtown festivities and not have to worry about the safety of their property. The Public Service garage is just off the parade route. It’s patrolled, well-lit and will stay open late.”
    Operational hours at the garage Saturday will run from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Regular hourly rates will apply - $2 for the first two hours with an additional $1 added every hour thereafter. The parade begins at 11 a.m. Saturday.
    Regular tenants’ keycards will work normally and holders of parking passes at the El Presidio or Public Works Garage can park in the Public Service Garage at no charge.
    All of the County’s downtown garages also will observe regular hours of operation on Friday, Nov. 10, despite the observed holiday by County government. The Parking Operations Office will also be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. both Friday and Saturday. Call 520.724.3102 for more information.
