The town's staff of six full-time parking enforcement officers, and one part-time officer, spend about five hours a day in Byram enforcing regulations, Corry said.......The proposed project to meter the lots would split the 110 spaces about equally between eight-hour and two-hour spaces, Corry said.
Corry said additional personnel would be necessary to increase the level of enforcement in Byram, and that meters would make enforcement more simple and efficient.
Currently parking enforcement officers patrolling Byram chalk the tires of cars in regulated spaces, returning later and ticketing those which remain in the spots.
"You come back an hour or two laters to check if they've moved or haven't moved," Corry said. "When you are talking about 100 cars that gets very labor intensive."
If the meters were installed, the additional revenue generated from fees and fines could possibly help pay for an officer to deal exclusively with Byram enforcement, he said.
"It is hard right now to be consistent with enforcement with the people I have," Corry said. "It would mean increasing my staff to have somebody dedicated to that area."
Now Here Is Someone Who Is Able To Think Outside The Box To Solve The Byram Parking Problem - Duh, Let's Develop More Parking
"Right now Byram is growing and we have great businesses coming in," he said. "But it won't continue to grow if we don't deal with the parking issue and find more spaces."
