Thanks for last nite parking ticket. You would think a idiot would have known it was not going to snow, but I guess the local (who are not local) police didn't know that! When this berg was run by people who cared for the residents, this bull sh"t didn't happen. I would not ever again vote for this present village board. I saw numerous tickets on cars besides mine. These elected officials suddenly separate from the local residents to show who is charge, I bet there are not 60 percent of people even know them. They don't attend too many functions, Just get elected and get paid, with benefits. There leader is the worst., only attends picture functions.

I should have known , I got ticket too, these police only follow orders. Sitting in bank parking lot, with very little traffic on nites probably boors them. So they then get out of their idling car for exercise . So we get tickets and then they go back to their real job in Amsterdam or where ever the next day, laughing how they get paid to do nothing in ST. J.

There is an overnight parking ban. What part of that don't you understand? It does not matter if it snows or not, if your parked illegally you will be ticketed.

And for the comment about the police officers not being local, are you pissed that you can't get FAVORS and BREAKS because you DON'T know the officer or his family? HAHAHA to bad for you! BECAUSE NONE OF THE COPS OWE YOU ANY FAVORS BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW OR CARE WHO THE FU#K YOU ARE!!
SOOOOOO... Why don't you follow the friggen local law and you won't have any problems.

Seriously- how do you fault the PD for writing Parking Tickets when people are dumb enough to blatantly ignore the parking rules/regulations/laws? You try to say that they don't do anything, but it sounds to me like this one was doing his/her job! Better pay up...

I've lived in this village for 10 years and I've never got a parking ticket. Maybe that's because I park where I'm supposed to. Pretty simple concept. Try it.

Maybe I was stupid, but Most places use common sense, if there is not a chance of snow, as weather during day was 54 degrees and nothing on horizon. You do not screw the citizens. You may put a warning on car, that they are in violation. Do the police want community support or do they just want to do, What they can? I got a ticket a few weeks ago, that I deserved, I forgot where my car was. I don't bitch about that. I lose all respect when weather this late in year shows common sense that it ain't going to snow or ice. The plows drive around cars after 6 am when parking is legal. That does not to be a problem, maybe all the negative talk around ST J would stop if the village worked with the citizens. In the City the same cops are on the same beat to get to know who lives there, These bergs like ST J hire anybody from anywhere , In some places Cops must live in where they work to develop relations with residents to receive feedback on what's going on. In ST J cops just ride around or park in secluded areas to pounce on cell phone or seatbelt infraction.
