Mayor says scofflaws to get boot
People who haven't paid their parking tickets in Union Bridge may soon find themselves unable to get out of the parked position.
The Denver boot, which prevents a vehicle from being moved by immobilizing its back wheels, will be used to trap cars of town residents with outstanding parking tickets.
The device is currently housed in the town office and will be used by the town's state police officer, Tfc. Phil Henry, to punish offenders after due warning has been given.
Mayor Perry L. Jones Jr. said once final warning notices to residents in violation of the law go out, he expects the boot will go into use, perhaps as soon as the end of the week.
Trick or treating is on for Halloween season
Union Bridge residents under 12 will be allowed to trick or treat within town limits, the council voted Monday night.
Residents participating in the Oct. 30 event should turn on their porch lights between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. so children will know which houses have "treats" for them.
The Town Council voiced concerns about outsiders coming into the town to trick or treat, but decided that with last year's successful Halloween event, they could do it again with out negative results.
