Mayor Rick Schultz says some business owners have asked for the change especially since the influx of a lot of new businesses in the down recently. He says they also want to be more consistent with parking rules throughout the downtown. Schultz says they'll be talking to different department heads, including the police chief, to get their feedback on the proposal.
