Nearly 20 local residents, senior citizens, business owners and employees were in attendance at a special parking meeting held Monday evening at City Hall. St. Marys Mayor Sally Geyer and City Councilman Dick Dornisch hosted the meeting, during which attendees discussed their concerns and potential solutions to parking in downtown St. Marys.
The Elk County Conservation District approved the proposed 2012 budget during Monday night's regular meeting.
District officials budgeted $190,897 for the 2012 fiscal year with a three-percent raise for employees.
An executive session was held prior to the meeting to discuss the budget.
"We went over some numbers and I think we came up with a fairly well-balanced budget," Braun said.
Braun said the decision for the three-percent wage increase was based off of what county officials were doing.
