With controversies raging over the new parking regulations by the Monrovia City Cooperation and its partners, the Ministry of Public Works has been instructed by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to create an alternative parking lot to be used by vehicle owners who park for longer hours during the day.
Making the disclosure, Deputy Information Minister for Public Affairs, Jerelimic Piah, indicated that the newly cleared extension of Center Street, by way of the College of West Africa, has been allotted for use as parking lot. According to him, car owners will be able to park there for a small and reasonable amount, which has not yet been determined by the government.
He, however, said the President is concerned about the situation, and that consideration will be given to the many concerns aimed at satisfying all parties involved.
