Downtown Jefferson City parking program to be reworked
City says it will use discretion in enforcement
Sunday, November 13, 2011
While the proposed downtown residential parking program goes through a new round of possible changes, the city has decided to withhold issuing any new permits to downtown Jefferson City residents.
The City Council withdrew a bill to put the program in place Nov. 7 when several council members indicated there was enough controversy involved to show the bill needed more work and discussions.
Nathan Nickolaus, interim city administrator and city counselor, said the city would use discretion in enforcement of downtown parking permits. But until an official program is put in place, no new permits will be issued.
