You will soon be able to pay for parking with your phone in Ocean City municipal lots.

The resort is taking plans from a number of companies but the biggest firm is the app Parkmobile.

Among the advantages is that the app would alert you to when your time is running out.

WBOC reports that the Ocean City Police Department issued over 58-hundred parking tickets last year.

The town is hoping that the new app will reduce those numbers.
