COLUMBIA — The City Council tabled Tuesday for the second time a bill that would prevent drivers from parking within 10 feet of a mailbox.
The bill, proposed by Second Ward Councilman Jason Thornhill in response to complaints he received from people who didn't receive their mail because their mailboxes were blocked by on-street parking, was first tabled Dec. 6.
City Manager Bill Watkins recommended tabling the bill until the council could talk to the stakeholders in the particularly affected neighborhoods.
The council will take up the bill again at its Feb. 22 meeting.
Action: Council bill 287-10 would prohibit parking within 10 feet of any mailbox.
Vote: Tabled 7-0.
