Parking limit ‘burns’ shopper

Dear editor,
So much for the promotion of local shopping!
I thought I had at least three and a half hours to park on Main Street in downtown Georgetown recently but, much to my dismay, after supporting the merchants by visiting the bank, going for lunch, getting a parcel mailed and picking up some food products, a $20 parking ticket was added to the premium of being a “Shop Local” supporter.
Apparently one is only allowed to park on Main Street for two hours. To make matters worse, not only was I supporting the downtown businesses that morning but was coming back that afternoon and night. So even though I can’t get my $20 back I can warn others of the two-hour parking restrictions on Main Street so they don’t feel as burned as I did.
It won’t cost a cent for parking at the new outlet stores and it doesn’t cost at all to park at the Market Place mall, so why impose a two-hour restriction on parking downtown where merchants could use the support for more clientele?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
