Street Commissioner Johnny Williams shared new signs that will be placed on the north side of Brown Avenue that prohibit parking from Dayton Boulevard to Sturmer Street. Williams spoke during the Belington City Council meeting Thursday evening.
The decision to place the signs and restrict parking on Brown Avenue was sparked by requests from Belington resident Eddie White, who asked council to remove the "no parking" sign in front of his Brown Avenue home. During the last meeting, Mayor Jody Haller said he and the council had looked over the situation and decided to uphold the no parking policy, and had even decided to extend the no parking zone.
Williams told council the signs would be installed soon. He said the snow plows and spreaders were all checked and ready to go if the town should receive snow.
Haller said he and some council members traveled to Tunnelton to check on a used bucket truck. He said the truck would be an asset for the community and save money. Council voted unanimously to purchase the vehicle.
The next Belington City Council meeting is slated for 7:30 p.m. Jan. 3.
