Parking and Budget On The Agenda
Are motorists parking where they like, whenever they like, driving you crazy?
If so, come along to the latest round of Community Voice meetings to find out what's being done in East Herts to combat the problem.
The Community Voice meeting for Hertford will be held on Thursday November 25 at the Corn Exchange in Fore Street. The meeting starts at 7.30 pm and will finish at 9 pm.
The meeting will also seek to explain how East Herts will be setting its budget to provide services for next year, where the money comes from and what pressures could influence the setting of council tax levels.
East Herts Council takes over the role of parking enforcement on January 17 next year. New-look parking attendants will ensure motorists abide by parking regulations on the streets in town centres and will be able to fine those who break them.
The future introduction of on-street charging in town centre parking bays, as well as which roads in the district may soon be getting residents-only parking schemes will also be discussed.
Cllr Jim Thornton, Chairman of Community Voice Hertford said: "This is a jam-packed agenda and gives people a direct opportunity to ask questions about two issues that affect them in their daily lives - parking and council tax are always hot topics and I'm sure people will welcome the opportunity to find out more."
