STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - The City of Starkville is looking to adjust its parking problems in residential areas.
In fact, the city board has voted to hold a public hearing next month to see how the public feels about the problems.
City leaders say they have received a number of complaints from residents about cars being parked in unusual places in certain neighborhoods in the city, as well as all over the city.
One such area is at the intersection of Edgewood Drive and Briarwood Drive.
"We're working on some residential streets, mainly around some rental houses parking in the front yard to the biggest problems," said Buddy Sanders, Community Development Director. "The current ordinance is based on square footage. That does not work well in university cities, just because we have so many rental houses. Now it will be based upon bedrooms."
A public hearing is planed for June 5 during the city's board meeting.
