Madison mayor considers automated parking garage to solve parking problems

Many residents in Madison say trying to find a parking spot is becoming a problem. In response to the complaints, Madison Mayor Woody Kerkeslager says the town is considering an automated parking garage.

The automated parking garage is a mechanical system that automatically stacks cars in a compact storage vault. Kerkeslager says the garage will take up less space and is more environmentally friendly. He also adds the new garages remove the fear factors of walking in a dark garage.
