Pottsville Rolling Out “courtesy” Ticket Program – Pahomepage.com

Harris, like most people, has had a panic attack when it comes to parking meters. “You’re always watching the clock to make sure you’re not going to run out,” she said. “It’s a quarter every half-hour. So, you have to come down every two hours to fill the meter.” The Parking Authority in Pottsville is hoping to alleviate some of those worries along with opening some spots in the city. Patrick Murphy, the authority chariman, said two random days a month people who violate the one hour parking spots, or who don’t pay the meter, will be given a “courtesy ticket”. The ticket won’t come with a fine, but instead it’ll tell folks where they can park for longer periods of time. “We know that we as the Parking Authority need to constantly be looking to make sure there is an adequate amount of space available in downtown,” Murphy said.
