Kakata City Cooperation in Margibi County has introduced a new city parking ordinance, requiring all vehicles to park properly in the city’s streets. Speaking to reporters in Kakata recently, Kakata City Mayor Eddie Z. Murphy said all vehicle owners or drivers are required to pay a fee of 30 Liberian dollars per hour to park their vehicles in the street.
Mayor Murphy made the disclosure after convening a meeting with the Safety Section of the Liberia National Police at his office in Kakata recently. He indicated that the measure is instituted for both private and public vehicle drivers, who may want to have a brief stop in the main streets of the city to urgently attend to other businesses.
According to him, the new measure is not meant to open a parking station, warning drivers to desist from using the opportunity to look for passengers in the streets. He warned that any driver caught using the streets as parking stations will be fined.
