The Ridgway Borough Council discussed various solutions for the Main Street parking situation during their regular meeting held Monday evening.
During a meeting of the street lighting, parking and traffic committee held Jan. 9, the committee recommended that signs be installed on Main Street posting two-hour parking limits to be posted from Broad Street to the V.F.W. on both sides of the street. The proposed signs would be funded by the Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the Heritage Council. The committee also recommended that enforcement be decided upon at a later date.
