An Albany City Commissioner says parking restrictions in downtown is no longer needed.

Commissioner B.J. Fletcher says the two hour parking restriction downtown is not business or visitor friendly. She says it turns away visitors and businesses from going there. She's received a lot of complaints about it and plans on presenting the concerns to city commissioners and hopes they will support it.

"It's just something that I think is outdated, it's been on the books a long time,” said B.J. Fletcher, Ward III City Commissioner. “It's not going to mean anything economically to the community. It's not that big of a money maker to even worry about that."

Fletcher says she will present her plans to City Commissioners at a work session in October.
