Dawson to enforce new parking ordinance

Dawson City council ready to enforce new parking ordinance

DAWSON, GA (WALB) - The Dawson City Council announced May 25 that they will be enforcing a new parking ordinance

The city council announced that no motor vehicles, including motorcycles, can be parked on city streets between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Parking will be permitted in designated parking spaces.

There will be no parking on city streets Monday and Tuesday north of Lee Street and east of Highway 520, Wednesday and Thursday south of Lee Street and east of 520, and no parking Friday west of 520.

Many residents are worried what this new schedule will mean for traffic in the city.

"It's gonna cut out a lot of folks that need to come up here and park that can't walk," said resident Harold Wills. "Something like wheelchair people that can't park."

This new parking ordinance will take effect June 11.
