St. Charles man ticketed for how he parked in his drive-way

ST. CHARLES, MO (KTVI) –On Friday St. Charles resident Troy Underwood and his family spent the day at Six Flags. He returned home and discovered a $25 parking ticket on his truck. He became outraged because the truck was parked in his driveway on Timberlodge Landing. According to Underwood he had been parking his truck just past his driveway for over a year and never had a problem. He says his biggest gripe from the incident is he didn’t get the answers he wanted from city and never got a warning. His neighbor Mike Schimweg agrees.

“Stuff like this should be addressed because you can’t just go out there and using these minor ordinances to collect revenue for the city.” said Underwood

I think it would be different if it was a major road likeMmexico or Mid Rivers that would be different but this road goes into a cul-de-sac.” said Schimweg

St. Charles city officials say they’re working with code enforcement on the issue. According to their website ordinance number 350-090 says you can’t park on a sidewalk, bike path and other locations.
