Ada City Council News & Notes from August 8th Meeting

By Mark Askelson (8/8/17)

Ada, MN -- An ordinance passed a few years ago regarding the parking of trailers in the street became a topic of debate at Tuesday night’s Ada City Council meeting. The discussion resurfaced after the City of Ada began to enforce the ordinance and was met with resistance and some strongly worded letters from citizens. Ada Mayor Todd Sawrey says they may have to revisit the ordinance and see if some compromise can be made.
