Council moves to hike parking violation fees

WILLIAMSPORT — The Williamsport Town Council on Monday night tentatively agreed to increase the fines for some of the town’s parking violations.

The six-member council voted unanimously to approve the increases after Councilman William “Bill” Green said some of fines appeared to be too low.

The council approved increasing the fine for parking on a red line from $5 to $10. Fines would also be increased for parking on a red line in the wrong direction from $10 to $15; blocking an alley from $5 to $10; and parking in front of a fire hydrant from $5 to 25.

The council is expected to vote on the fines again during its Aug. 12 meeting. If the increases pass during that meeting, they will go into effect 20 days later.



Councilwoman floats dog-training class idea

WILLIAMSPORT — Williamsport Councilwoman Maya Haines Monday night suggested offering dog training classes to the public.

Haines said she believes the classes would be beneficial. For example, the classes could teach children how to safely approach dogs.

Haines suggested putting a notice about the idea on the town’s website and getting feedback from what people might like to learn in the classes.
