COLUMBUS (WCMH) — After about a month-long grace period, the city of Columbus is now passing out tickets to residents, employees and visitors who park in the Short North area and surrounding neighborhoods for extended periods of time or without a permit.
Dozens of tickets are already sitting on windshields. Under the new regulations that began January 22 there is no more free parking on the street. You must either get a permit or pay at the meters.
And those who do use the parking meters must move their cars every three hours between 8 in the morning through 10 o clock at night.
Madison Edison works in the area and tells me the new regulations interfere with her work day.
“You have to physically move your car which takes time out of everyone’s work day,” Eidson said.
