Someone new could be writing parking tickets soon in downtown Davenport. Wednesday night, the city council will consider hiring Per Mar Security Services to enforce parking rules downtown.
Nicole Gleason, with Public Works, says Davenport usually has one city employee to enforce rules, such as the two-hour parking limit and handicapped zones. But that employee left the job last winter, and Per Mar has been providing the service ever since.
The city is considering a three-year contract for $67,000 a year. That would pay for two employees to do the job.
