Get Ready For Parking Nightmare at Norco Courthouse

Much needed renovations to Northampton County's crumbling parking deck are imminent, perhaps only a week or two away. When it starts, and it's going to take four months, parking will be at a premium.

Exec John Stoffa had previously decided to close off 60 parking spots at a time. But he's learned the County can save $50,000 by closing off 120 spots. So guess what he's doing?

County officials have contacted nearby St. Anthony's and will be able to rent a lot from them for the four month duration. That will cost aroud $10,000, but the County will still save $40,000.

In the meantime, workers will be asked to carpool as much as possible.

Maybe the tipstaff can drive shuttle vans.

This is the same deck Stoffa said was totally unsafe and could collapse fout years ago. Glad he got around to it. Amazing!
