Harrisburg Parking Authority

Harrisburg Parking Authority

The Harrisburg Parking Authority was created pursuant to the provisions of the Parking Authority Law of June 5, 1947, P.L. 458 and by the passage of Harrisburg City Ordinance 13-1972 on September 26, 1972. Since incorporation, the Authority has had a separate existence with purposes and powers as set forth in the Articles of Incorporation and in the Act.

It is considered by law to be an instrumentality, not of the municipality which incorporated it, but of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. It is, in effect, a separate corporation formed for public purposes. The Board of Directors is the governing body under whose guidance and control the affairs of the Authority are carried out.

The role of the Board is to review and approve policy matters, to oversee management, to appraise its performance and to counsel the Chief Executive. The Board of Directors of the Authority is set at five in number, the majority of whom must be residents of the City. The members of the Board are appointed by the Mayor for five-year terms, each term expiring June 1 in successive years. Members receive no compensation for their services.
