WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - The city of Watertown is explaining itself by delivering letters to business owners in Public Square in hopes of addressing parking enforcement concerns.

The letter explains that the 30 minute parking spaces and the decision to hire a second parking enforcement officer came after suggestions from downtown business owners.

An attached map shows four downtown parking lots that business owners can park in for free.

City Manager Rick Finn says the city’s stance is that the 2 hour parking spaces downtown are for customers not employees.
