Judge considers Seaside's reserved parking plan

SEASIDE HEIGHTS - (AP) - A judge is considering whether Seaside Heights can continue to sell reserved parking spaces to homeowners and businesses.

The Jersey shore town has allowed property owners to pay $500 annually for a metered space or $250 a year for a nonmetered space in front of their lots since 2006.

Klee's Bar & Grill filed suit, saying there were so many reserved spaces around the business that patrons had difficulty finding a place to park.

The Asbury Park Press reports attorney Jay Curry on Thursday argued the program violates the public trust because the town receives state money for the roads.

The town says people can still use the road, they just can't park in reserved spots.

The town leased about 450 of more than 3,000 public parking spaces in 2012.
