    to CS parking problem
by Brian Boyer
Battalion Reporter
A plan to contract a towing
service to discourage parking on
major streets was discussed by
the College Station City Council
Thursday night.
Some no-parking /ones
already have tow-away zone
notices posted, City Manager
North Bardell said. Until a tow
ing service is contracted by the
city, however, offending vehi
cles will merely be ticketed, lie

Bardell said that illegal park
ing is a problem near shopping
centers and apartment com
plexes that do not provide con
venient or adequate parking for
tenents. The plan is designed
especially to discourage parking
in fire lanes, he said.
Along some streets, illegally
parked cars force shuttle buses
to stop in traffic, Bardell said.
Requiring offending motorists
to pay a towing fee in addition to
a traffic citation should discour
age illegal parking, he said.
“Given the amount of money
it costs to build a major street, it
shouldn’t be used as a parking
lot,” Mayor Gary Halter said.
“You can build a parking lot a
whole lot cheaper than you can a
major thoroughfare,” he said.
Halter said that he would like
to eliminate parking along
Jersey Street, which he said is
being used as a parking lot by
motorists without a Texas A&rM
parking permit.
Other business before tbe
council included a budget re
quest of $10,650 to help finance
the Bryan/College Station Clean
Community System. The coun
cil approved the request, which
must be matched by Bra/os
County and the City of Bryan to
meet the Clean Community Sys
tem’s $51,950 budget. The Col
lege Station City Council also
passed a resolution approving
the organization’s bylaws.
In other business, a proclama

Appreciation Day was signed by

Small said the corporation’s

Small said the corporation
decided to sell its interest “be

achieved in saving the Driskill.”
Laral, headed by Larry Sup-

two years ago and made major
improvements in it.
