On Friday, Grady Walker, Chief of the Eudora Police Department sent a letter to all downtown Eudora businesses, explaining that there have been “several” complaints about delivery trucks either parking in the street or taking up several parking stalls along Main Street.

Chief Walker, in his letter, stated that none of the parking slots in downtown can be assigned or saved for particular businesses, nor, can traffic or parking be impeded due to illegally parked vehicles making deliveries.

“Beginning December 1st, 2010, the Eudora police department will begin enforcing the standard traffic ordinances for Kansas Cities by ticketing delivery trucks parked on Main Street in an illegal manner” said Walker.  Walker strongly suggested the businesses utilize the alleyways to the rear of the buildings along Main Street, for deliveries and stop accepting deliveries on Main Street.
