With more people enjoying the sandbars on the River --- parking is getting hard to find.
Tonight the Bismarck City Commission made a move to solve the parking issue that is happening on River Road.
Mark Berg--the city traffic Engineer says that people are parking in no parking areas and along the side of the road.
The Commission approved the recommendation to put in tow away signs to get those parking illegally out of harms way.
(Mark Berg/City Traffic Engineer) "Issuing a ticket is one thing. It's a ten dollar fine. it's not a huge impact but it does not relieve the safety issue. it doesn't get the vehicle moved so in visiting with lieutenant Steve Kilday from the traffic section of Bismarck Police Department this was one resolve we came to was to actually get the vehicles out of there.
Berg says that this sandbar area wasn't there in the past and therefore the parking was never really an issue.
