Ask The Mayor


Mayor Hal Richards

Q. - On Monday, November 5th and 12th, I went to the library and tried to park in a handicapped space but couldn't because cars that had no handicapped placard or plates had parked there.


I have found that this is a very common problem at the library.


When I have reported this to the library employees, I have been told to call the Police department and a ticket can be written for these cars. These cars are taking valuable space for handicapped people. I would appreciate a resolution to this problem. Thank you.

Answer - Thank you for this report.


The staff at the Hulsey Public Library try to keep an eye on these violations but they are not always in a situation that allows them to view the handicapped spaces. Because of your input, the library staff is going to try to monitor this more closely. They will call Terrell Police if they see what appears to be a violation.


Also as a result of your input, Terrell PD is going to put the library on the “extra patrol” list, looking for violations.


Drivers may think it is OK for them to park in those spaces momentarily but they should expect to be ticketed if Terrell PD shows up when they are illegally taking up a handicapped space. The City appreciates citizen reports of illegal parking in handicapped spaces.



Hal Richards, Mayor
