4. PARKING ISSUE- 146 N. 100 E. – DEBORAH DOW
Dow requested that the City Council create a temporary parking permit that
citizens could purchase when they have a non-working vehicle so that the
vehicle can be left parked in the street. She currently resides at 146 North
100 East in an apartment complex and does not have access to off street parking.
She stated that the parking permit would allow citizens to leave their non-working
vehicles in the street until they are able to get them fixed and would
alleviate parking citations from the City. She stated that she has received two
citations for parking an unregistered vehicle in the street and one for parking
in the street during City snow removal. Chief Shilaos stated that unregistered
vehicles may not be parked on City streets at anytime and must be licensed,
insured and in working condition. Councilmember Hanna-Smith stated that Mrs.
Dow could park in the City parking lot close to her home as long as her car was
licensed. The Mayor appreciated the request from Mrs. Dow but City ordinances
do not allow unlicensed vehicles to be parked on the streets and because Mrs.
Dow is not the only person with a non-working vehicle, it may become a problem
to allow temporary permits for non-working vehicles. Chief Shilaos stated that
4 day temporary permits are available through the State of
