Town of Perth looks to extend parking time for accessible parking spots
The town of Perth is looking into the logistics of extending parking time at its accessible spots.
The town received a letter from resident Lois Hutchins who uses a walker. She explained the two hour parking time limit on the spaces can be extremely challenging for people who have to move at a slower pace. He letter letter struck a chord with committee members.
Councillor Barry Smith told Lake 88, “I just very much agree with it. She made a very good point. if she has an appointment at 11 o’clock she’s got barely two hours, and then she had a dental appointment and it made sense to increase it. So I just, I’m very much in support of it. I think it’s an easy thing we can do to help the handicapped people in Perth.”
Town staff will be looking into the matter, consulting with by-law enforcement and bringing recommendations back to council.
