Debates continue for prohibiting Sidney residential truck parking

Improving city streets is a high priority for Sidney leaders. There is not enough money in the budget to repair all of the roads so the city manager and council have begun taking steps to reduce further wear and damage.

City Manager Ed Sadler explained that the biggest step is to reduce truck traffic in residential areas not designed to handle such weight. In conjunction with a recently established truck route, the city is considering an ordinance that would not allow commercial trucks to park on residential streets. Currently the proposed ordinance does not include recreational vehicles.

There are several citizens opposed to this matter. It would require truck drivers who normally park their semi out front of their residence over night to have to find a different place to store their truck.

Sadler said that this is, “not the be all end all street problems,” but it is the first step. The next step is adjusting the city’s snow removal procedure.

No final decisions have been made on truck parking yet, the matter will again be discussed at the next city council meeting.
