Seeking to stop people from blocking sidewalks and other violations, the City Council decided in a split vote Monday to move forward with a proposed ordinance to increase parking fines across the city.
The council set a Sept. 23 hearing to take public comment on the proposal and to vote on whether to adopt it.
Under the plan, the fine for blocking a sidewalk would be $25 for a first offense, $75 for a second, and $150 for a third.
