Restricted parking law before council

JOHNSTOWN — The Common Council will conduct a public hearing Monday on a proposed ordinance change that would restrict parking for a section of South Perry Street.

The hearing will kick off the council’s monthly business meeting at 6 p.m. Monday at City Hall.

Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting will be closed to the public, but broadcast using Facebook Live. The public can view the session from the official city of Johnstown Facebook page — city of Johnstown, New York.

The hearing pertains to no parking on South Perry Street. Later in the meeting, the council will consider an amendment to the city’s Code of Ordinances to have “no parking any time” on the east side of South Perry Street – from the intersection of First Avenue to the intersection of Fourth Avenue. It would take effect after adoption.

In regular business, the council will consider approval of 13 resolutions, three of which would advertise for public hearings. The hearings related to licenses and miscellaneous business regulations, designation of through streets, and a handicap parking zone.

The council will also mull resolutions to advertise for labor, and replacement of infrastructures; and approve bids for properties on West Fulton Street and North Market Street.

Resolutions are also on the agenda to: authorize state Department of Environmental Conservation access to property; rescind a previous resolution involving a Spring Street property; enter into an agreement with Eastern Medical Support; and accept two offers for North Market Street properties.

Other parts of the meeting will include: Approval of claims and accounts, noting of city official reports on file, liaison reports, a mayoral appointment, council discussion, and announcements read by Mayor Vern Jackson.
