Halifax sets the timer on for parking

South Boston News
New signs limiting parking to two hours were installed along the streets in the Town of Halifax yesterday with enforcement by the town police to follow.
SoVaNow.com / October 24, 2013
The Town of Halifax has set a maximum two-hour limit on parking along Main Street following the installation of new signs yesterday by members of the Virginia Department of Transportation.

Visitors who are shopping or dining in town are encouraged to park along Main Street, but if they are coming into town to do business at the courthouse complex or at other places where their stay may be for more than two hours, they are asked to use the public parking lot located at the end of Blue Ridge Lane. The lot is located on the south side of the courthouse.

Alternately, visitors can use the public parking at the library parking lot, or park in the entire front lot of the Farmers Market for longer periods of time.

Those who violate the two-hour parking ordinance could be cited with a $10 fine. Initially warnings may be written for vehicles violating the law, but if a vehicle is found to be continually violating the ordinance a citation may be issued. The two hour limit runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Another way for the new chief who has small man diesease to bully county and town citizens. If you don't have to spend money in the town of Halifax, don't. I don't anymore.
