While many local authorities are facing a hefty bill to update their car parking machines in time for the introduction of the new £1 coin, Boston Borough Council won’t be spending a penny.
When installing the new machines last year, it was aware of the changes with the new 12-sided coin so they are all set up and ready to accept them.
It is costing neighbouring East Lindsey District Council £5,350 to update their 75 machines.
The new coin comes into circulation in March.
Sleaford-based North Kesteven District Council has 13 machines and the authority said it will cost about £2,500 to update them.
The current £1 coin will be in circulation until Sunday, October 15, when it will be demonetised.
