Handicap

Lexington city officials are considering more than a 15 hundred percent increase in fines for illegally parking in handicapped spots.  Under the proposal passed by the Budget Committee Tuesday, the fine goes from 15 dollars to 250 dollars.  Committee members had considered a range of fines, but instead, adopted an amendment by Vice Mayor Linda Gorton. “I think this needs to be a stiff enough fine that people won’t do it ever,” said Gorton.
