LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Those gray coin-operated meters in downtown Las Vegas will soon be going away.

The City Council voted in favor of a $1.4 million plan to purchase new parking meters, replacing hundreds of old meters with ones that take both coins and plastic.

The funding comes from a separate self-sustained parking budget and not from the general fund.

The City Council voted 5 to 2 to purchase 233 new multi-space meters, which would replace 1,200 outdated ones in downtown Las Vegas.

City Parking Services Manager Brandy Stanley says the new meters are more user-friendly.

A city spokesperson says when the new meters are installed this summer, customers can use smartphone apps to look up where the open spots are located.
