Stone Harbor Council to Look at Sale of Parking Permits

Stone Harbor Council to Look at Sale of Parking Permits

STONE HARBOR – The Borough Council will be investigating complaints by residents who claim that the borough is selling many more parking permits than the number of spaces available for permit holders.

The problem, raised by members of the public at the council’s May 7 work session, is that individuals who have spent the money for a permit are often unable to find a parking space.

Stone Harbor has paid parking on streets and in lots near its business district from May 1 to Oct. 1. The borough also has seasonal parking permits for sale for $250. The permits allow parking in designated lots and are most popular with employees of businesses.

Parking is a particularly sensitive issue in the borough after the problems with the 2023 rollout of the ParkMobile app for paid parking spaces led to a large increase in the number of parking tickets issued in the borough.

The fact that the parking permit program comes under borough ordinance might limit what can be done for the 2024 season. Changes to ordinances require a lengthy process of introduction, advertising, public comment and final adoption.

The council’s Public Safety Committee, chaired by council President Frank Dallahan, will be looking into the matter.
