Bringing back a parking enforcement officer?

City officials recently debated whether they should reinstate a parking enforcement officer position.

During Monday night’s meeting, Interim City Manager Kirby Hudson told City Council that there have been issues with parking in the city’s central business district for the past two years. The position was eliminated in 2007 during budget cuts.

Some members of City Council said that it in addition to issuing parking tickets, the officer could address quality of life issues. Some of these issues include parking against the flow of traffic and abandoned cars, they said.

City Council made no formal decision Monday about whether to reinstate the position.

As a resident of the City of Coatesville, do you think it would be worthwhile for the city to bring back this position?

I believe that certain individuals in Coatesville had a “Get out of Jail Free” card as far as parking tickets were concerned. I believe that some individuals with Code violations had the same “Get out of Jail Free” card. It’s very easy to find in the court records. Hopefully the judges and the people with the “Get out of Jail Free” cards are a part of the FBI investigation underway in Coatesville.

We have a new judge in Coatesville and maybe Coatesville Codes Officers and a new Parking Enforcement Officer will not feel they are just going through the motions of doing their jobs.
