Democratic County Legislator Leslie Rivera has introduced legislation for a parking study
for the Department of Human Services building
at 619 St. Paul Street. A Legislature committee will take up the measure during its meeting at 5 p.m. on Monday, July 28.
In a memo accompanying the legislation, Rivera says that the parking situation at the office has created serious concerns for staff and clients. In particular, the lack of available parking is a problem, Democrats say. And on-street parking near the building is susceptible to ticketing and towing, the memo says.
“The issues at this location have been longstanding and have been in need of solutions for far too long,” Rivera says in the memo.
The study would determine the facility’s parking needs, the memo says.
A second Legislature committee will consider the legislation at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 30. BY JEREMY MOULE
