Preston's new parking ordinance, June 1


Fri, May 7th, 2010
Posted in Government

After much discussion over the last few months, the city council put the final touches on their new parking ordinance at the May 3 meeting. A resolution was adopted to establish parking zones for semi tractors and semi tractor trailers. Parking will be permitted on the easterly and southerly side from Pleasant Street to Fillmore Street for a maximum of 72 hours and on Freeman Street, north side, from Washington Street to Winona Street for a maximum of 24 hours.

City Administrator Joe Hoffman said the effective date will be around the first of June after publication of the ordinance.

Mayo 1 Landing Site

The ambulance crew requested no parking zones be established near a gravel lot owned by Ron Scheevel across from POET to be used as a landing site for Mayo 1. City Attorney Dwight Luhmann thought the agreement should be between Ron Scheevel and the Mayo Clinic. Hoffman agreed that they need to determine what the city's responsibility will be, if any. Mayor Kurt Reicks suggested they check into what kind of arrangement there is in Chatfield where a landing site is located near Strongwell.
