Everett To Crack Down On Those Who “Re-Park”


It will be much harder to “re-park” soon in Everett.

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 local cable access channel EverettTV.

    Who gives a sh$T about PARKING.

    Let’s do something about the ever increasing number of homeless people in North Everett. The “Clean and Sober” housing that’s popping up all over my area giving Sex offenders, drug addicts and other criminals a safe place to get high?

    Let’s talk about the ever increasing crime rate happening in our city. The drug related violence that’s starting to take control of our town.

    Let’s talk about the overwhelming number of used needles all over the place in downtown Everett especially in Playgrounds and in Drug free zones.

    Let’s discuss how I cannot go into my own front yard to play with my 20 month old daughter with out being asked for money, or to use my cell phone or for cigarettes. It happens 8 out of 10 times I leave my house!

    Let’s discuss how these “Homeless” people using the bathroom all over the freaking place making the area stink like piss and throwing their garbage where ever they see fit.

    Let’s talk about the alarming rate of bed bugs we have in our area.

    Burn down all the “Clean and Sober” houses they aren’t clean and sober and infested with beg bugs and drugs. Let’s move the Homeless people some place else.

    Who cares about PARKING!!

    And will this ordinance be posted. Visitors to our fair town, you cannot repark your car if you are going to be here for more than 90 minutes.

    Sure, just continue to kill all the businesses downtown. Can’t have dinner and see a play after stopping by the bank and the library.

    Why would you not be able to repark? That’s just stupid… If you need more time and if spots are available, you should be able to repark. Damn city trying to take every cent they can so they can purchase a new logo and then scrap it.
