I work downtown and see the same cars parked in prime on-street parking, more or less in the same place, day after day and watch the employees head off to work.
My employer is not at a retail business so parking for our customers is not an issue. So with that said, shouldn’t employees park in the city lots, either by the library or the Chamber of Commerce, but as far away from Cole and Griffin if you want your customers to shop, eat or even visit your business. I will park outside our office after hours or to load/unload the car and then park elsewhere to keep the parking spaces available for your customers or visitors.
The street signs clearly state two-hour minimum but since everyone knows that they will not get a ticket, it is no longer a deterrent; unfortunately the only ones who think a ticket is in their future are visitors.
