ALBERTON -- The chair of Alberton’s police committee, David Campbell urged RCMP during Monday’s council meeting to crack down on drivers who disregard the overnight winter parking ban and on business people who exceed the two-hour parking limit on Main Street.
“We had some discussions with some of the owners about parking on Main Street. I think it might have done some good,” he reported, but he added some business people continue to take up parking spaces on the street.
“If we are going to have overnight parking and two-hour parking (restrictions), I want it enforced,” Campbell advised. “If we have to go to court for it, we go to court.”
Concerning the overnight parking ban after midnight, he pointed out there is no distinction given for storm nights and clear nights.
Campbell suggested maybe a written warning the first time might be enough to bring compliance.
Mayor Michael Campbell pointed out there are signs posted all along Main Street advising of the restrictions.
Campbell thanked the officers who conducted a recent walk-about thorough the business district and reported some seniors have requested more of a police presence on back streets.
