“I really want a permit system for residents and non-residents,” Katz said. “I really don’t want to slam the residents.”
Katz made a motion to adopt paid parking that incorporated a permit plan. Before a vote, Tillapaugh, whose family owns a funeral home on lower Pioneer Street, moved to amend Katz’s motion to exempt that portion of Pioneer Street north of Stagecoach Lane from paid parking.
Her amendment and Katz’s motion were approved unanimously.
The board also set a hearing on the establishment of four additional 15-minute spaces on Pioneer Street.
“We heard the issues from multiple members of the business community on the street,’ Katz said later. “We heard they needed some help. There were also resident issues on a street that is half-business, half-residential. We addressed some specific needs.”
