Parking Ban-East Water Street by orders of The Mayor

By Order of Mayor Philip Cimino

Mount Carmel restricts parking on East Water St.

Mount Carmel Borough will be issuing a parking ban on East Water St. starting immediately from North Market to North Walnut on both the north and south sides of the creek channel. Mayor Bing Cimino said since the new channel is wider, it makes it very tight for a pickup truck or full size car to get through the streets. With this in mind trying to get a fire apparatus or ambulance through is almost impossible. It also hinders the street workers from plowing and salting or laying anti-skid down. I have to take into account the safety of the citizens with making this decision and after talking with the police department, fire department and the street workers I have to make this decision. I am sorry for the inconvenience but safety has to be the number one priority and I ask for your cooperation in this matter. I will be asking council to make this permanent at a future council meeting.
