Council calls special meeting on parking

Tribune staff report

A special meeting is being called for members of the South Lake Tahoe City Council to discuss and possibly hash out a direction for the city’s paid parking program.

The meeting is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 13 in the City Council Chambers at Lake Tahoe Airport.

It was announced Friday.

People opposed to South Lake Tahoe’s paid parking program are trying to gather enough signatures from registered voters in the city for a ballot initiative to repeal the program.

The proposed initiative aims to prohibit the city from charging people to park on public streets or in public parking lots.

Proposed ballot language would allow the city to continue to charge for parking at city-owned garages and to assess fines for unlawful parking.

If put on the ballot and passed by voters, the initiative would not prohibit paid parking on Ski Run Boulevard south of Pioneer Trail.

The City Council holds a regular meeting Tuesday, Jan. 14. It begins at 9 a.m.
