The Morris Police Department took a little bit of a break in enforcing downtown parking ordinances during the COVID-19 Pandemic. That will no longer be the case.
According to a post on their Facebook page, the department is reminding downtown shoppers that 2-hour Business District Parking is located on Liberty and intersecting avenues and is enforced Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. There are also two fifteen minute spaces on Jefferson Street in front of Napa.
There is no 2-hour limit on Sundays or legal holidays. Like everywhere else in the city, any public parking not designated has a 48 hour limit.
Officers will also write tickets to vehicles that have backed into a space, are not parked between the lines, are blocking an alley or sidewalk, are marked for sale, or are parked in a handicap space without proper clearance.
Most city parking citations will only cost you $10, which is why the police department is asking the public to please refrain from colorful language when arguing with an officer about their ticket.
