A temporary parking ban began earlier this week in an east-side Elgin neighborhood that restricts on-street parking in the area bounded by St. Charles, Villa and May Streets and Willard Avenue.
The temporary parking ban will be in affect from midnight to 7 p.m. each day with parking allowed on the odd-numbered side of the street on the odd days of the month and on the even-numbered side of the street on even days of the month.
Residents not adhering to the restrictions will first be warned. A resident could be issued a $20 ticket on the second violation with additional violations resulting in added tickets or towing.
The temporary ban will be in affect until January 7, 2007 when the Elgin City Council will then decide if the on-street parking restrictions have proven to be effective.
