Parking Changes Proposed For Waterville Residents

Waterville residents can offer feedback on proposed parking changes in the village at a public hearing next month.

At last week’s Village Board meeting board members spent a good part of the two-hour meeting discussing how to structure parking on Madison Street and near the Village Park. The discussion kicked off when DPW Superintendent Jamie Bechy said a resident on West Bacon Street asked to have the no parking zone extended after a party on the street created problems when cars parked on both sides of the street.

The board agreed to do that.

Madison Street’s parking issues stem from cars parked on both sides when buses use the street to get to and from the Junior-Senior High School. Board members discussed banning parking on both sides from 7 to 9 a.m. and 2 to 4 p.m. during the week. Right now parking is allowed anytime on both sides.
