WEST FRANKFORT – The West Frankfort City Council Tuesday night tabled the issue of placing no parking signs in the 1200, 1300 and 1400 blocks of E. Oak St.
Council members decided to have the codes department send letters asking residents to resolve the issue on their own accords. If not, the issue will be revisited at the next council meeting.
Last month, West Frankfort Police Chief John Prudent requested the city council to place no parking signs, but the council left him the issue to research and report to them at a future date.
