Parking on North Main Street to be limited.

January 4, 2016

SCOTTVILLE — Parking on the west side of the 100 block of North Main Street has been limited to two hours, following a resolution by the Scottville City Commission tonight. The issue was brought up by City Manager Amy Williams. 

“The reason I am bringing this back up now is that we have some of the people who live above 101 North Main Street parking out front all day long,” City Manager Amy Williams wrote in a memo to commissioners. Williams said the topic was brought up a few years ago and the commission took no action at that time. “They are parking there from the time we come in at 7 a.m. and stay there all day most days. They are taking up one to two parking spaces right out front and our customers have to park quite a ways away in order to come into the office.” City hall is located in the same block at 105 N. Main Street. “I have placed notes on the cars in question and left a note on each of their exterior doors asking that they please not block spaces for any length of time, but that has not worked.”

Commissioners spoke in length about whether they should restrict parking lengths on the east side of North Main Street and even in the 100 block of South Main Street. Ultimately they decided to just address the area in front of city hall at tonight’s meeting.

“This should allow anyone doing business here at city hall, 101 North Main (McMasters building) or North Country Café enough time,” Williams said.

Commissioners voted 4-2 to restrict the parking, with commissioners Ed Hahn and Ann Genson voted against. Commissioner Marcy Spencer was not in attendance.
