Parking in Mingo still a problem

Key --

1. Parking still a thorny issue: not enough of it! :roll:

2. Business owners / employees who are parking in front of their own stores have no right to complain about the lack of parking because they are part of the problem.

3. People used to park behind the buildings until debris and garbage began accumulating along the railroad tracks -- and the road was designated a fire lane as a result.
