Borough Ordinance Now Allows Free Parking After 5 P.M.

At a special Ellwood City Council meeting held last Thursday, borough council changed its parking enforcement rules to now allow free parking after 5 p.m. within the borough.

This comes after a wave of parking tickets were issued on Lawrence Avenue during business after-hours. Over 25 tickets have now been voided per the request of Mayor Anthony Court.

The original metering ordinance called for enforcement from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. but had gone largely unnoticed until the wave of ticketing after 6 p.m. in late-February was brought to light.

This also comes after a meeting in January when council discussed a complaint regarding police officers parking personal vehicles on Bell Avenue behind the Municipal Building – something Mayor Court says is prohibited.

Later, borough vehicles were issued tickets while they parked and on borough related business.
