GREENFIELD — It’s been two months since the city quit enforcing its two-hour downtown parking rule, and officials said they haven’t heard any complaints.
The downtown parking attendant position was eliminated from Greenfield Police Department’s budget. Richard Posey, who held the position six years, was let go Oct. 1, and while city council members said they may re-evaluate the move and put the position back in the budget, Mayor Dick Pasco said that’s probably not going to happen.
“I’ve not had a single complaint,” Pasco said.
