Postal Employees Denied Exemption

Canada Post employees in Lunenburg will have to continue to carry some extra change with them to feed the meter.
Council has turned down a request to exempt the employees from having to pay for parking.
The workers sometimes have to park on the street in the morning because transport trucks delivering the mail block access to the employee parking lot.
Mayor Laurence Mawhinney tells us council felt it would be setting a precedent which would lead to a rash of similar requests.
