RIDGELEY – The Ridgeley Council is cracking down on noise on the streets with $50 fines for spinning wheels and excessive noise.
The recent ordinance revision also prohibits storing trailers, commercial vehicles and disabled or junk vehicles on the streets.
Effective April 1, parking is being eliminated on both sides of Jewell Street and the south side of Third Avenue.
Letters will be sent to notify residents, many of whom have off street parking. In passing the ban, the council noted that parking is too close on the streets and is hindering fire trucks, ambulances and the snow plow.
Like many other municipalities, Ridgeley is joining with the state in the annual proclamation supporting April as Fair Housing Month.
Ridgeley passed its budget for the coming year, noting that revenues are down $13,000 from what was anticipated.
A spring town newsletter will be coming out soon and will include plans for Earth Day April 21, with town clean-up and flower planting.
A.J. Twigg and Trenton Bradshaw of the Ridgeley Hawks appeared before the council and were granted approval to put a storage shed at the ballfield next to the one used by the Ridgeley Rams.
The building will hold equipment and concession stand items and will be movable if needed.
