Auburn City Council on Thursday debated expanding the ban on overnight parking in the downtown core following a presentation by Auburn Police Officer Greg Gilfus. Downtown residents are using street parking spots to park and on weekends many people leave their cars following a night on the town.
City Clerk Chuck Mason said on Friday’s Finger Lakes Morning News a decision could be made before winter.
Officer Gilfus presented two options, prohibiting overnight parking on Genesee and most of side streets or expanding the current no parking zone along Genesee from John and Owasco streets to James Street. Council members said they’ll work on an education campaign with downtown business owners if the parking ban is modified.
