New Parking Ordinance For Downtown Discussed At Tuesday’s Council Meeting

During Tuesday’s Amarillo City Council meeting, an update was given on the downtown parking management.

Along with the Paid Parking, a new ordinance was discussed to create a new office of civil administrative hearings for those who want to appeal their ticket.

This ordinance will declare that most stopping, standing, and parking violations will now be a civil violation, not a Class C criminal offense.

Municipal Courts Administrator Victoria Medley talks about the ordinance.

Currently, the times for the paid parking are from 8 am to 5 pm Mondays – Friday with the exception of MPEV events that will utilize a portion for paid parking during their events.

This new office will also cover red light camera tickets.
