COLUMBIA - Additional two-hour metered parking on Orr Street is up for discussion at the Columbia City Council meeting Monday.

Previously, the council decided to remove one metered space in front of the fire administration building on Orr Street to help alleviate dangers at the Orr Street and Ash Street intersection. After some council members raised concerns over the few parking spaces, the idea of more parking came about.

Orr Street has metered parking on the west side of the road from Walnut Street to Park Avenue. The ordinance amendment would add additional metered parking on the east side of Orr Street from Ash Street to Park Avenue. The addition would consist of three more meters.

The council plans to discuss the issue at Monday's meeting.
