State bills address parking near Capitol; Jefferson City Council approves moratorium on unmetered parking zones


Two bills are also making progress in both chambers of the Missouri Legislature as the end of the session approaches.

SB369 would ban parking fees within a mile of the Capitol except when enforced by a licensed peace officer. HB246 would ban parking fees for parking on public streets.

Both bills are still early in the process of the legislature. The senate bill passed out of committee last week. The house bill has been placed on the informal calendar for a third read.

The issue was addressed during the Jefferson City Council meeting on Monday night. If the bills passed, it would affect parking in Downtown Jefferson City outside of the Capitol grounds.

The council approved a moratorium on the enforcement of unmetered parking zones in the Downtown area until the June 5 City Council meeting.

The council referenced parking in the Downtown area where 90-minute, unmetered parking exists and the possibility of it either being inconsistently enforced, or it being abused by those moving their vehicles around the same zone.
