Dumpster parking only (Photos)
A reader pointed out that there are dumpsters in the street on Fairmont Avenue near the 7770 Norfolk building, and mentioned that they are taking up several public parking spaces without paying the meters. Dumpsters can be placed in the public right-of-way with a permit issued by Montgomery County. But I'm not familiar with the rules on when they are in paid parking spaces, such as whether they can pay a fee directly to the County in lieu of paying at the meter.
