Commissioners make extra parking available for Chihuahuas' first games
El Paso, TX (KTSM) — El Paso County Commissioners also gave the green light to extend their garage hours during the first two weeks of Chihuahuas games. We're just a week away from the opening of Southwest University Park's gates for the very first homegame.
The county's parking garage, which is located at Kansas and Overland, is about a 10 minute walk from the ballpark.
County officials said the operating hours of the Overland parking garage will be extended during the first two weeks of El Paso Chihuahuas baseball for home games.
The county had to approve overtime costs for staff which will set the county back $1,000.
"Hopefully the community will see the benefit of using it," said County Judge Veronica Escobar. "We'll probably offset our costs very, very quickly and make a little bit of money for the county. Anytime we can make money for the county it's a good thing because it helps us fund services".
Parking at the Overland Parking garage will cost you $5.
