A city council committee is asking the full council to look into getting special parking passes so council members don't get tickets while on city business.
Third ward councilman Jesse Lowe has gotten two tickets while parked just outside the municipal building in a 60 minute zone.
The issue arose last Monday night during the safety services committee meeting.
Teresa Adams originally had a different parking concern, one about educating handicapped parkers that their special handicap parking pass will allow them more time to park than they might have thought.
Adams, like Lowe has also received a ticket for parking at the municipal building parking lot while on city business.
The matter has been referred to law director Tony Geiger who is expected to look at the parking ordinance to see what, if any changes are needed, possibly adding the free parking pass language for council members.
While that's being looked at Your Hometown Lima Stations wanted to see if it was possible to include in the revamped parking ordinance a chance to buy parking passes for the news vehicles.
Adams doesn't think that request is out of line but councilman Lowe isn't convinced the media should be sold parking passes.
The parking pass issue is expected to be referred to the safety services committee once again with possible legislation ready by late August.
