WENTZVILLE, MO (KTVI) - There is parking pain in Wentzville and residents are complaining about high school students that flood areas around two schools with cars.

We're talking about Timerland and Holt high schools.  There is very little room for parking in the school parking lots, so many students who drive park their cars in residential areas. That's causing problems.

The people who live in the homes are complaining. That's why the city is considering limiting the areas and times for student parking.

One option the city is considering would allow for parking on streets in defined areas around the schools from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on school days.  Appropriate signage would be installed by the Public Works department and police will enforce the new parking rules.

There is a public meeting on the issue Tuesday night at Holt High School from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.   Any changes would start in the Fall.

    So, in other words, officers having to take time away from other more pressing issues to police this….only adding to government coffers with more tickets, and making it so students might possibly be made to park in more dangerous areas (farther away, or more secluded areas, etc). Shouldn’t safety be more of a concern, rather than just being a nuisance. Don’t live so close to a school if you don’t want the kids to be a nuisance to you.
