Havelock board discusses parking in front of business

Commissioner Danny Walsh said that any place with children’s activities could have parking problems because so many extended family members are interested in coming out to see the children.

City planner Katrina Marshall said the city alerted the business to the problems in December. The problems typically arise on Mondays and Wednesdays when children’s and adult classes are being held, she said, adding that the city had asked the owners to consider a rearrangement in class times.

‘The board has stepped up to the plate and will take appropriate action unless he does," Sanders said.

That action could be the posting of signs.

"The average person would have to believe that if it’s not posted then it’s probably not illegal," Sanders said.

Cyrus said that if the area was posted, then cars would be ticketed.

Walsh said he thought targeting one business over another was not fair, adding that the nearby McDonald’s sometimes has vehicles parked along service road.
