Possible restrictions on use of city parking lots


Mon, May 16th, 2016
Posted in Chatfield Government

During the May 9 meeting of the Chatfield City Council, possible restrictions for the use of city parking lots were discussed. City Clerk Joel Young noted that the issue came up late last fall about the use of the lots by private individuals selling produce, goods and services.

Young asked the council if they want an ordinance drafted, which would make vendors aware that they will no longer be using city parking lots. Vendors would be encouraged to find private property for their sales.

City attorney Fred Suhler explained there is nothing in the city ordinances at this time restricting the use of parking lots. Any restrictions will have to apply to everybody and all city parking lots need to be considered. He continued asking what restrictions are appropriate for parking areas that the city maintains. Can’t sell? Can’t solicit?

Suhler said restricting parking lots will not prevent a vendor from parking on the street to sell corn. He said it makes sense to create rules that are uniform.

Councilor Paul Novotny said there have been safety concerns with vendors in the library parking lot, due to traffic and congestion. Councilor Robert Pederson noted that he had received calls complaining that the vendor was using three parking spaces in the library lot.

Suhler suggested this is both a Parks and Public Services issue, involving two committees. Mayor Russ Smith said if you allow use for one individual, it should be allowed for everybody.

No action was taken.

Fundraising for

Chatfield Public Schools

Alesha Worden and Kari Friederichs asked for the council’s approval to use City Park on September 1 for a fundraising event for the Chatfield Elementary School. There will be a concert at Potter Auditorium at 7 p.m. featuring the Okee Dokee Brothers. Proceeds will be given directly to the school district to be used for the purchase of books, field trips, science kits and updated playground equipment.

City Park will be used to provide additional entertainment, beverages and food from 5-7 p.m. prior to the concert. The use of City Park was approved.
