Mt. Pleasant suspends three-hour parking enforcement due to federal court tire-chalking ruling

Due to yesterday’s (4/22/2019) 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling, stating it is unconstitutional for municipalities to chalk citizens’ tires to enforce parking, the City of Mt. Pleasant has suspended the specific practice of chalking tires. Monitoring and enforcement of all other parking regulations will continue.

The City is currently researching and evaluating other options for future parking enforcement.

In the meantime, the City will not be monitoring the three-hour parking areas for timed violations. Business owners and downtown employees are asked to refrain from parking in spaces intended for three-hour parking in order to allow customers easy access to all businesses in the downtown district.

Updated information will be provided when it becomes available.
