In response to Gravenhurst councillors receiving complaints from the public regarding time limits on parking, a by-law amendment was passed during the most recent Town council meeting “to remove the restricted time limit of one hour from parking lot 2 on Bay Street in Gravenhurst and to allow it to be non-restricted from Monday through Sunday.”
Coun. Varney said that “a lot of people work until the close of business and they have no idea what to do, where they were going to park. The two parking lots behind their businesses were just not going to cut it. They were getting ticketed.”
The motion was carried and new signs have been put up. Coun. Varney said she has already received comments from people who have seen the signs and “they’re happy.”
It was noted that this does not change winter parking restrictions: there is no parking between the hours of 12:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. from November 1 to April 30.
