HACKENSACK, N.J. —  In an early Christmas gift to local residents, Hackensack will allow free parking throughout Main Street from Monday, December 10 until Christmas Day, December 25. 

Covers will be placed on all meters during this time to notify patrons of free holiday parking on Main Street. 

“This is our little way of encouraging the people of Hackensack to support our local businesses and stress the importance of shopping locally,” Mayor John Labrosse said. 

The Mayor and Council made a similar move last December but this free-parking period will be twice as long as it was in 2017.
