If you’ve written to the selectmen about problems concerning parking passes at the commuter rail station, don’t worry, they know.
Addressing the problem, Selectman Bill Heitin said at a recent selectmen meeting that the board are aware of the situation.
“We are reading the correspondents for parking and parking passes. We understand the concern. There’s a number of things this board and the town administration is working on to better the process. I think it’s a better process than it was originally but there’s always room for refinement,” Heitin said.
Last month, Treasurer Bill Fowler told the board that quarterly passes are sold out and parking is extremely limited for commuters looking to utilize the train.
Heitin added that there are a couple of things in the work to improve purchasing parking passes that he hopes he can announce within a month and well before the next quarterly parking pass period.
“We understand that parking at the railroad station has been a problem for a long time and I think it’s something that we have to look for a long term fix,” Heitin said. “Seems like we have to address it every 10-15 years when the community grows.”
