Jean-Pierre Berwald: Yes to fireworks, no to bad parking

Thursday, July 13, 2017

I enjoyed Amherst’s firework display to celebrate the Fourth of July. It was well done and much appreciated. I didn’t enjoy the parking situation. I paid five dollars to park the car and had a horrendous time leaving the area.

With all the funds collected for parking, you might think that Leisure Services might have hired a few town police to expedite the departure of cars after the display. Many of us sat in our cars with the motor running for close to an hour waiting to exit.

It was a frustrating time that could have been greatly eased with some professional help.
