JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown City Council will meet Monday night for its monthly voting session and although the agenda is light, there are a couple of key items that city lawmakers will be considering.
Among the resolutions is a ban on the use of tobacco related products throughout all city parks, regardless of location. Current city law states that the use of tobacco is banned at ball fields, playgrounds and building facilities. The new proposal would extend the ban to all other locations of public parks.
Another resolution involves implementing a parking ticket amnesty program, which will allow anyone who owes on late parking tickets to pay only the original fine of the ticket. Mayor Sam Teresi said earlier this month the program will allow the city to recoup some of the nearly $500,000 in overdue fines that are owed to the city. If approved by the council, the amnesty program will begin April 1 and continue throughout the entire month.
Monday’s voting session begins at 7:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
