With the holiday season and winter snowfall upon us, parking in the business district is nearing summertime levels with increased shopping activities. We are asking the public for their continued cooperation in observing the 2 hour parking and snow removal parking signs in the business district. If you work in the area or need to park longer than 2 hours, long term parking is available behind the old library/museum building, on Second Street outside of snow removal hours, and the lower parking level of the Cordova Center. Santa is watching to see who is naughty and nice and unfortunately, if you are not careful, the parking Grinch may leave you a $40.00 reminder of the 2 hour and snow removal limits. Thank you for your assistance and Happy Holidays…..
