By Tere Dunlaptdunlap@themonroetimes.comMONROE - State law may have the last word on adding parking spaces on the Square. The Common Council on Tuesday directed the city police, fire, engineering and public works departments to look further into state laws and definitions to see if it is possible to add an extra parking space near each of the four mid-block crosswalks around the Square. Monroe Police Chief Fred Kelley and Al Gerber, Monroe engineer supervisor, told the council that state law requires at least 15 feet between the edge of crosswalks and the nearest point of a parked vehicle.
