LIVERMORE FALLS — The town manager, police chief and highway foreman plan to meet Wednesday to review the parking ordinance and its many amendments added over the years.
They plan to meet at 1 p.m. July 8 at the town office and then go out and see what has been working, what hasn’t and what doesn’t fit the town anymore, Town Manager Jim Chaousis said.
They will try to develop proposals that could be enforced and recommend them to selectmen.
Chaousis told selectmen that anyone interested in the parking situation is welcome to come to the meeting.
It will occur rain or shine, Chaousis said. If it rains too hard they’ll discuss the ordinance at the office.
There are new businesses in the downtown area and there have been some parking problems, he said.
There is supposed to be only one-hour parking on Depot Street, he said. There are also some confusing parking signs out there, he added.
Former Town Manager Martin Puckett had proposed changes last year but after residents complained, selectmen put any changes to the ordinance on hold.
