Gettysburg approves holiday parking; moves forward on 2023 budget

The Gettysburg Fall brush pick up will take place from Monday, Nov. 7 through Thursday, Nov. 10. The staff will come by each location two times during the week.

Gettysburg Borough has left the free holiday parking hours for 2022 the same as they were last year. 

Parking will be free on Monday through Friday between Thanksgiving and New Years Day for marked meters on Lincoln Square and within one block of the square and on Steinwehr Ave.

Three hours maximum.

But meters will be enforced for their regular hours on Saturday and Sunday.

In short, during the holiday period:

Monday through Friday:  Don’t Pay

Saturday and Sunday: Pay

The free holiday parking policy is designed to benefit merchants during the holiday season but also creates some confusion.  Parking Enforcement Officer Becka Fissel said that some drivers expressed confusion about the policies no matter how carefully the signs were worded, and that the policy frequently created anger on the part of drivers.

Police Chief Glenny agreed that there would always be some drivers who did not properly read the signs.

The borough council is continuing with its budget discussions. The council has cancelled the work session scheduled for next Monday, Oct. 31, due to Halloween, and will hold its final budget work session on Nov. 7.  The council expects to advertise the budget on Nov. 14 and hold a public review session on Nov. 28 prior to approving the budget at its meeting on Dec. 7.
