Vehicles will no longer be allowed to park in front yards unless it’s an improved parking space, according to a unanimous vote Jan. 27 by the Marion City Council.
According to the new ordinance, an improved parking space is an area with a non-vegetation, non-grass hard surface to include brick, gravel, rock, asphalt concrete or other equivalent material.
“The only exceptions would be temporarily loading or unloading property or passengers, a licensed contractor working on property or emergency vehicles,” said Roger Holter, city administrator
The ordinance further stated that violators will be fined for first, second and third offenses within 12 months of the first offense.
