Richard Nyholm, Centralia, addressed the Council and noted that the downtown needs shorter term parking not longer term.

Councilor Henderson read an e-mail into the record from Bob and Flossie Heymann noting that the merchants and the tenants were the problem and that they would like to see parking stalls painted. Councilor Anzelini wondered if there could be some sort of permit process that would relate directly to the needs of each business.

Sandra Walzick, Centralia, asked the Council to consider side streets.

Councilor Trent suggested that staff poll each business. Mayor Pro-Tem Coumbs stated he felt the Council should move forward with the ordinance as written. Councilor Henderson noted that the ordinance was too simplistic for the dynamics of the downtown and he felt businesses should be able to have some way of choosing or appealing. Councilor Bates stated that enforcement would be difficult with multiple hours posted and no consistency. Councilor Fund added that she felt the ordinance should be passed as presented and that the Council could direct staff to look into other options.
