Quincy police stepping up parking enforcement for holiday season

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - Quincy police are stepping enforcement of parking zones in the downtown district after officials asked to free space up for shoppers.

Police wrote over a dozens tickets in parking lots like the one near 5th and Hampshire Street Wednesday for vehicles who were parked in two-hour spots too long.

 Travis Brown of the Historic Quincy Business District said several lots offering all-day parking, like the new lot at 6th and Jersey Street and the one across from the Kroc Center.

"There is a significant impact on the retail businesses especially this time of year when people are getting out and spending those dollars." Brown said. "We want to make sure we're making it as convenient as possible for the customers to get into the stores."

 If you get a ticket for parking longer than two hours in one of those designated spots, it will cost you $5.
