Everett To Crack Down On Those Who “Re-Park”
local cable access channel EverettTV.Tonight the Everett City Council will get a look at changes to the city’s parking laws that will make it harder for those who “re-park” their cars in the downtown area to have overtime tickets dismissed by a judge. Currently people who park in a 90 minute zone for say 88 minutes, then “re-park” their car around the corner to re-set the clock have been able to have overtime tickets thrown out. The city plans on adopting tougher State regulations that would not allow the “re-parking” loophole. The city is also updating disabled parking laws to match State regulations that will allow an Everett police officer or parking control officer to impound a car parked in a disabled parking spot without the proper permit. Tonight is just the briefing and a public hearing on the proposed changes will be held at the Everett City Council meeting on June 17th. Tonight’s meeting starts at 6:30pm in the council chambers at 3002 Wetmore. You can also watch live online and on the
