Samantha Scoles/News Attorney Thom Cooper, standing, addresses Centerburg Village Council Monday. Cooper provided a history of his law firm, Cooper, Adel & Associates, the firms contributions to the village and how elimination of parking on North Ewing Street would hurt his business.

CENTERBURG — Centerburg Village Council continues to discuss North Ewing Street parking after resident Greg Sands raised concerns regarding bottlenecks and possible hazards during the July meeting.

At the July meeting, Sands suggested council consider limiting parking on North Ewing to just one side. Village Administrator Joe Hardin said he would look into the issue and bring possible solutions to council at its September meeting.

Thom Cooper, local resident and owner of a law practice in the village, addressed council Monday, advising he believes the village has two issues to consider — parking and truck traffic — both of which should be addressed separately and requested that council not eliminate parking on North Ewing Street.
