Reserved handicapped parking on residential streets in Kane has been eliminated-- again.
The Kane Borough Council voted 5-2 Monday to repeal an ordinance covering residential handicap parking spaces.
Council President Howard Kane joined with Councilwoman Janet Bard and Councilmen Harold Hallberg, Bill Tunall and Dennis Drost to repeal the ordinance adopted in June. Councilwoman Holly Harris and Councilman John Gentilman cast the lone negative votes.
Council in April voted to eliminate reserved parking for handicapped on residential streets. However, council in May introduced legislation to revised its ordinance and allow the parking spaces for handicapped.
