Parking crackdown to begin in Saranac Lake

SARANAC LAKE — The village police are asking that drivers respect the time limits and signs relating to parking in the village, as they will be cracking down and issuing tickets to those who violate the rules.

To help with the cracking down on violations and the issuing of tickets, a seasonal parking enforcement officer has been hired for the summer.

The village police have already started to crack down on violations in the downtown area and the village parking lots, which is where the primary focus of finding traffic violators will be, last Friday; however, instead of handing out parking tickets, the village police only issued warnings. From Wednesday on, the police will start to issue tickets for all violations.

According to a press release by the Saranac Lake Police Department, the hiring of a seasonal parking enforcement officer is done every summer.
