Do not put cones, chairs or other objects in the street to save parking spaces during winter weather, or else Lansdale Public Safety will confiscate them.

It was reported at this week's Lansdale Borough Public Safety Committee review that two Wedgewood development residents appeared at the committee to complain about other residents in the area placing items to save parking spaces during the winter.

“A letter addressing the issue went out today to Wedgewood residents, forewarning that, if you do place objects to save spaces, those objects will be confiscated,” said committee Chairman Tom Work at Wednesday night's council session.

Councilman Rich DiGregorio suggested putting the warning on the borough website or in borough electric bills.

“A lot of residents forget it's public parking and you can't reserve a spot,” he said.

Borough Manager Timi Kirchner said it was a good suggestion.

“We do have it in the code that you can't do that. It's our job to pull these objects off the street because they are dangerous,” Kirchner said. “It's not because you shouldn't be reserving spots.”

Kirchner said the law would be communicated to residents via the “E-Motion” and “Electric Wire” newsletters.
