"It seems like a waste of money," Councilor Carolyn Formanek said. "To stripe something for a month-and-a-half."
"By the time we mess with it, it's going to be more unhandy," Councilor Dave Roozeboom said.
"I grew up in Chariton and they have that," Councilor April Verwers said. She went on to say that the streets are wider there. "I think it would be hard for the courthouse to get all of the equipment in and out that they're going to need."
No vote was taken, but the council agreed with staff that mid-street parking will not work. Assistant City Manager Dylan Feik said that he hopes that, even though this idea will not be implemented, the public will continue to offer ideas and suggestions to the City.
"If people have ideas on streetscape, let us know," Feik said.
