The Pittsburgh Parking Authority's board on Thursday approved spending $4.5 million to buy 340 electronic, multi-space parking meters for Squirrel Hill, Shadyside and Bloomfield.

Dave Onorato, the authority's executive director, said the meters would be installed by summer's end. The city is in the process of replacing 3,000 outdated single-space meters.

Cale America Inc. of Tampa, Fla., won the contract. It also landed a $7.3 million deal last year to install 554 meters in the North Shore, South Side, Downtown, Oakland, Shadyside and Bloomfield.

Onorato also said total street meter revenue increased by about $250,000 in February compared to the same month in 2012. He attributed the increase to the new meters, which accept credit cards.

The board also approved paying Am-Guard of Sharpsburg about $1.7 million a year for the next three years to provide security in parking garages. That's what the authority now pays Am-Guard, Onorato said.
