Norristown Working On Parking Proposal
Business owners on West Marshall Street in Norristown are complaining about new parking meters that charge $1.50 an hour. They say some customers are getting parking tickets because they don’t put enough money in the meters, while others are taking their business to areas that have lower-cost or free parking.
Several have suggested a rate of 50 cents per hour. Norristown Council President Gary Simpson says two committees are working on a parking proposal, and it will be discussed with business owners and West End residents.
