HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Most people who live along Second Street in Harrisburg were surprised to find tickets on their windshield Thursday.
Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse announced on Wednesday that Standard Parking would resume their normal duties of writing tickets for parking violations, which includes ticketing cars not moved on normal street cleaning days.
City spokesperson, Joyce Davis, says a lot can get done even if the street cleaners are not working in the neighborhoods, including light replacements and other maintenance efforts.
Maggie Johnson says it was unfair to issue tickets a few days after the storm.
“I know there are people, especially the elderly, who don’t have anyone to help the move their cars, especially if they are still snowed in,” said Johnson, “They could have waited a few days, most people could put that ticket money to better use.”
Davis says the city provides several options for residents to stay current on changes, including the city’s website and Facebook. She says residents can pick up the phone and dial 3-1-1 and someone will provide updated information. People can also call 717-412-4320, after hours.
