Glen Rock NJ, For those of you who use the Glen Rock EV charging stations downtown, please note that as of Jan 21 the Borough now charges a fee of $1.50/hr for use of the chargers. This fee is in effect 24/7, but note that there is no overnight parking in the lot. Payment is made via a new ParkMobile zone (3303) created just for the 2 parking spots associated with the charging station. Additional instructions were posted at the site yesterday. Previously established zones in that lot have different rates and hours as indicated. Hope this clears up any confusion.
