BAYONNE, NJ – After receiving much criticism over its decision to impose a fee on local residents wishing to park in front of their own driveway, the Bayonne City Council decided on Thursday to postpone the decision that passed at Wednesday’s council meeting.

In a statement published on Mayor Jimmy Davis’ Facebook page, City Council President Sharon Ash Nadrowski said the proposed resolution will be put under a six month review to “determine the effectiveness of the program,” with no fees charged to property owners.

“Based upon Councilman [Thomas] Cotter’s recommendation and consultation with Mayor [Jimmy] Davis,” Nadrowski said, “the city council is considering an amendment to the proposed driveway parking regulation.”

The council approved a resolution on Wednesday that would have required residents to purchase up to three permits to place on vehicles that are approved to park in front of the resident’s driveway. Each pass would have cost $50.

Davis said he intends to veto any driveway parking resolution that includes a fee structure.

A misunderstanding with the city’s legal department led to an inaccurate reading of the proposed regulation, Nadrowski said in the statement.

“The intention of the new regulation was to allow property owners to legally park in front of their driveway,” Nadrowski said. “Unfortunately, there was a miscommunication with our legal department and the final resolution voted upon does not accurately reflect our intentions."
