For a short time at last week's meeting of Lansford Borough Council, it appeared that parking meters in the struggling business district of Lansford would be removed.
There was a motion made and seconded for the meter removal.
The motion was made by council member Mary Soberick, who said there is "minimal business" and "half of (the meters) don't work."
Her motion was seconded by Joe Butrie.
But councilman Tommy Vadyak spoke up and said the meters are needed "to keep vehicles moving." He said once they are removed, they likely would never be put back.
