A new ordinance being considered by the Sidney City Council would prohibit certain trucks from parking in any residential area.
Ordinance 1787 specifies “motor carriers, common carriers or contract carriers” would not be allowed to stop or park in any street or alley within a residence district “except for the purpose of expeditiously loading or unloading their commercial contents.”
The ordinance does not specify length and width for vehicles.
City Manager Ed Sadler described the ordinance as “relatively simple and straightforward” during its second reading Tuesday at a meeting of the City Council.
“This is pretty much dealing with trucks, and between this ordinance and the truck route ordinance, this is going to keep those large vehicles from parking in residential areas,” Sadler said. “That is what it was intended to do to address your concerns regarding the care of our streets.”
