A new permit has been created in New Milford for people looking to park along River Road, in the turn offs, and the back parking lot at Sega Meadows Park. The free permit will be issued for a specific date of the resident's choosing. Mayor Pete Bass says this stems from the illegal parking along the side of the road, which has led to safety concerns of emergency vehicles being able to get by.
The permit will include the make and model of the car, the license plate and the valid date. It will be signed off on by the Mayor's Office and is good for one day. Anyone looking for multiple days, could be issued multiple permits.
Bass says they're trying to ensure a safe environment and will tow cars parked there illegally. Police will be on hand to make sure the rules are followed.
