Parking Proposal Includes Maintaining Alternate Exempt Area
An alternate side parking exempt area around UW La Crosse would become permanent under new parking rules getting a vote next month by the city council. Although widely considered a failed experiment, rules allowing drivers in the exempt area to ignore alternate side parking rules in the winter unless notified will continue under modifications that would also allow towing of cars and a tripling of parking fines. City public works director Dale Hexom likes that last part
The alternate side parking exempt area was to expire after this winter season. Mostly because when notified to move their cars, hardly anyone in the area bothered to do so.
