Carrier ordinance passes, 4-1


Don Ogle / Sun-Telegraph Editor

One of the things Sidney city officials are trying to do to help keep up city streets is restricting both travel and parking of commercial vehicles.

Sidney's carrier ordinance passed with a 4-1 vote at Tuesday's city council meeting.

Council Member Kelly Utley voted against the ordinance.

A third reading of Ordinance 1787 was held from March 28 so city staff could include a waiver process following complaints and concerns received from the public.

The ordinance itself remains the same. "Motor carriers, common carriers or contract carriers" are prohibited from parking in residential districts "except for the purpose of expeditiously loading or unloading their commercial contents."

The planning and zoning commission will consider applications for exemptions and bring their recommendations to the city council for approval.
