Reading City Council Creating New Parking Ordinances

>>Reading City Council Creating New Parking Ordinances

(Reading, PA) -- Reading City Council is trying to build revenue through several new parking ordinances. The council voted in a special meeting yesterday to allow parking enforcement on Saturdays and increase penalties for hazardous parking violations. The vote passed six-to-zero, making fines for parking violations up to one-hundred-dollars. Hazardous parking violations are considered for vehicles that are parked next to fire hydrants or against the flow of traffic. There will also be an increase in penalties for trucks, trailers and RVs that are improperly parked in the city.
