If you’re fed up with seeing tractor-trailers on the streets of Ozark, the board of aldermen would like to hear from you.
The Ozark Board of Aldermen will take up discussion of tractor-trailer parking throughout the city, and seeks input from the public to fuel the discussion.
“This is becoming a major nuisance and we are exploring how to deal with it,” Mayor Rick Gardner said in an email to the Headliner News.
Semi-truck parking is restricted on certain streets in Ozark, whereas other spots have become a haven for tractor-trailer drivers who live in Ozark to leave their rigs parked.
West Waverly Way, for instance, sits one block north of South Street near a Walgreen’s, a Goodwill store and a strip mall. The north side of Waverly is a designated zone for tractor-trailer parking, and usually has a line of trucks parked parallel along the curb on any given weekend.
The Ozark Board of Aldermen will take up discussion of tractor trailer parking at a meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 4, at City Hall. The meeting is open to the public.
