Council votes down parking restrictions

City council unanimously defeated one of its own bylaw amendments aimed at curbing the practice of parking RVs and truck-and-trailer combinations in commercial parking lots while also outlawing the practice of parking vehicles with for-sale signs on private properties next to roads.

The proposed bylaw amendments would have limited the amount of time any vehicle could park on a residential road. Under the existing legislation, which now remains unchanged, a vehicle can park on a road for up to 72 hours, while RVs and trucks and trailers were limited to 24 hours.
