THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - City officials are taking a fresh look at parking options in the downtown area.
The Daily Comet reports that possible solutions for the 627-space parking area include angled parking, redirecting traffic and possibly a parking garage.
In September 2013, the Baton Rouge-based firm Digital Engineering and Imaging recommended the return of parking meters and the addition of angled parking.
Mayor Tommy Eschete has ruled out meters, saying they are expensive to install and proved ineffective in the past.
The city is seeking more input and hopes to have new recommendations for the City Council later this year.
The Digital Engineering and Imaging study has been given to the Thibodaux Police Department for more examination.
