Parking on Main Street and in the rest of the downtown area should be limited to a couple of hours, in the view of Flin Flon City Councillor Bill Hanson. "Myself, and I realize we can't afford a commissioner or a parking meter attendant, but I'm at the point where I believe that uptown should be two-hour parking only," he remarked at Tuesday's City Council meeting. Councillor Hanson said this doesn't mean he favours reactivating the parking meters, adding that he isn't sure how a two-hour limit would be enforced. But he feels such a restriction would address what he sees as a consistent problem of the same vehicles eating up spots on Main Street. "I drive down Main Street every morning and at nine o'clock, you can see there will be certain cars in the same spots all the way along," said the councillor. "I don't know, what do you do?" There are a few two-hour parking spots in the community, including the space in front of Doe Doe's Pizza and Subs on Green Street. See 'Topic' P.# Con't from P.# With the topic of parking on the meeting agenda, Councillor Cal Huntley took the opportunity to say that the response to the deactivation of the parking meters has been generally positive. "We made a commitment with regards to the meters, and on the whole, I think it's worked quite well," he said. "We haven't got a whole lot of complaints from it. In fact, we've got some very positive feedback."
