Here’s a sign things are beginning to return to normal in Pottsville.

Pottsville Parking Authority will resume issuing parking tickets on June 8.

The PPA stopped issuing tickets early during the coronavirus pandemic response.

According to a Facebook post from the Pottsville Business Association, regular enforcement of parking rules will go into effect on that date.

Starting on June 1, Pottsville Parking Authority will start issuing one-week warnings to parking scofflaws. Those warnings will remind you that starting on the 8th, they’ll begin ticketing again.

This goes for parking lots, parking meters, and spaces monitored by the ParkMobile app.

The PBA says, “If you have a pass, display it. If you have a parking space/lot, use it.”

The “pick-up zone” parking will remain in place until further notice.

Those are areas for businesses offering curbside pick-up or take-out of orders while they’re still not permitted to have guests inside their establishments.

    Parking meters were a useful tool, to generate revenue and control parking, during a time when our County was busy, robust, and full of businesses, in every storefront, in every local town. Now, sadly, someone in Pottsville thinks that tons of people are coming to Pottsville to shop in boarded-up, abandoned and bankrupted buildings and storefronts…parking meters and their enforcement only annoy already monetarily challenged folks in this depressed area…it’s a total waste of time and city spending.

      Agree. Why bother? I will stay away

        Local businesses always need support. It would be nice if the Parking Authority and City would hold off on enforcement – even promote free parking – to get people downtown to support these hard-working business owners.
