Bridgewater: Town Excludes Saturday From Parking Enforcement

The town of Bridgewater has taken swift action to change parking enforcement on Saturdays. Mayor David Walker says the town approved a motion to change their parking bylaw immediately to exclude Saturday from parking meter enforcement. The decision means parking meters will be enforced from Monday-Friday. He says the town also decided to consider all parking meter violations from last weekend as a warning after more than 20 were handed out. Walker says they dropped the ball and didn't communicate well with the public.

Walker says anyone who paid their parking tickets can be reimbursed at town hall. Council also decided to develop a committee to look into matters regarding parking meters, signage and special event parking arrangements. The group will present a preliminary report before the end of November.
