Town officials move forward with changing parking garage rules

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Yesterday, Town Council voted unanimously to update the rules of the parking garage. After several meetings discussing the topic, officials chose to discuss the changes in a workshop. Below are the parking garage rules, with changes highlighted in bold. A. No person shall park a vehicle in the public parking structure located at the corner of West Simpson Avenue and South Milward Street for more than forty-eight (48) *consecutive* hours, unless parked in spaces designated otherwise by appropriate signage, pavement markings or curb markings erected or placed by the Town. *Upon having parked up to forty-eight (48) consecutive hours, a vehicle must be vacated from the parking garage for a period of no less than twenty-four (3) hours before the vehicle may be permitted to park within the parking garage again.* (Ord. § 1, 2016; Ord. 1079 § 1, 2015; Ord. 1052 § 1, 2014.) B. *No person shall park outside the marked lines of a designated parking space so as to obstruct the ability of another vehicle to park in the adjacent parking space.* (Ord. § 1, 2016.) C. *No commercial vehicle, freight carrying vehicle or trailer shall be parked in the public parking structure. For the purposes of this subsection, a “commercial vehicle” means any vehicle or vehicle combination used in commerce to transport passengers or property, or cargo. *(Ord. § 1, 2016.) Since these changes were approved, officials directed the Town Attorney to make the changes to the current Municipal Code and present it at the next meeting for first reading. After the code passes three readings, then it will be implemented and enforced.
