The council discussed the possibility of revising the parking ordinance. For consideration to be added to the ordinance a clause for allowing access to emergency vehicles and snow plows and no derelict vehicles on the street. The violator will receive a verbal warning, a written letter and a certified letter. A fine of $50 a week would be imposed until the vehicle is moved. The city does not want to be burdensome to the residents and will work with the vehicle owners to resolve any issues. In order to pass a new ordinance a public hearing will need to be held.
