Four formerly reserved parking spaces now are available for public use in the downtown area.
In a report from bylaw enforcement officer Patrick Briere, to be received by council at its regular meeting tonight, the town has received a few requests to remove private parking spaces at Fort Floral and H&R Block, as well as two church loading zones on the 300 block of Victoria Avenue (the Salvation Army's former location).
The signage for these locations already has been removed and the parking spaces are back open for public use, with the necessary traffic controls also in place, noted Briere.
For example, the stalls in the BIA area have reverted to two-hour parking.
Council is being asked to approve the report and amend the relevant bylaw.
Tonight's council meeting will follow the committee of the whole meeting, which starts at 5:30 p.m.
Two in-camera items are on the agenda, including a governance matter and the Agency One matter.
