Watts: Logan City intends to enforce parking

Starting on July 1 the Logan Police Department, not the Denver-based private parking enforcement company Clancey, will be issuing parking citations.

Logan Mayor Randy Watts says a lot of angry and frustrated people have called the city when they receive a parking ticket they consider unfair. Watts says things should change in some situations.

“If you park in front of a fire hydrant or in a handicap parking, if you haven’t got the sticker, I guarantee you’ll receive those tickets,” Watts said. “But the others we definitely need to make sure that you’re rotating. If it’s half-hour parking, two-hour parking, one-hour or whatever that is, that’s what we are there to do, to make sure we enforce those rules.”

On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Wednesday, Watts said this is not a way for the city to make money. Hopefully, Watts said, it will turn out to be revenue-neutral.
