Title

Resolution to Amend the Old West Side Residential Parking District - West Mosley Street and Appropriate General Fund Unobligated Fund Balance ($1,000.00) (8 Votes Required)

Memorandum

Attached for your review and approval is a resolution to amend the Old West Side Residential Parking District to include parcels on a portion of West Mosley Street; from  309 West Mosley Street through 415 West Mosley Street.

 

Streets or sections of street currently signed for “no parking” or other restrictions will remain the same.  The inclusion of a street signed for “no parking” in the District allows residents fronting that street to be eligible to participate, obtain a permit and park on another RPP Designated street within the Old West Side RPP District.

 

Funding for the required signage installation was not included in the 2019 General Fund Operating Budget; therefore, it is necessary to appropriate the funding for the work.  The estimate for the cost of signage installation is $1,000.00.  An annual increase in residential parking permit revenue is estimated to be $450.000.
