CONWAY —  Town Manager John Eastman claims the proposed paid parking plan in North Conway Village is fully legal despite being challenged by a member of the Conway Municipal Budget Committee and North Conway merchants about the plan.

At the budget committee’s Jan. 4 meeting, budgeteer Stacy Sand, along with Joann Daly of Soyfire Candle, questioned the legality of using paid parking revenue to offset taxes. Sand said it must be spent on the roads in and around North Conway.

Just curious. Is there going to be Police or any type of enforcement("meter maids") to monitor expired parking times on meters ? If so, wouldn't that add to the cost of the meter program and if not wouldn't that allow people to park at the minimum rate and stay for hours or all day.
