Council adds RVs to parking ban  By Greg Bowen  The Heiald-Zeitung RVs were addc'd to the list ot vehicles l)anned from parking on Nenv Brauntels' residential stre*ets on Monday.  City counc il had, earlier this month, ap|)roved an initial reading of an ordinanc e banning 18-whevl-ers and other big true ks trom |)ark-ing on [)ublic rights-of-way in neighborhoods zoned resldc'ntial, but had not includc'd recreational vehic Ic's in the pro[)c)sed ban.  But on Monday, Counc ilor Richard Za|)ata said he had a "huge (jrobtem" with the' lac t that RVs were' not inc luded in the ban.  Zapata said he believed it was unfair to prohil)it working-class |K'0-ple from parking tht'ir works true ks on the streets while allowing owners ot expensive RVs to do so.  "I have a hard time thinking we'd  allow that to happe'n " Zapata s<)id.  Council added RVs to the“ ban and, on a 5-2 vote', ap[>rovc‘d the' second and tinal rc'.iding ot the' ordin.ince.  Hit' [).irking ordin.incc' lians vc'hi-c le's that wc'igh mor(' than JO,000 pouncK or are' longe'r than 22 tee't, wider tli.in 8 tc'c't, or tallc'r than 8 feet.  Mayor Gak* Pospisil vote'd against the ban, as did Councilor P>ryan Miranda.  Pospisil said she fc'lt uncomfort-able both with adding RVs to the* ban without any advance notific a-tion of RV owners and with f)re-venting truckers from parking their work trucks on the' strc'c'ts in tront of their home's.  Four truc kers apjK'ak'd to c (mncil not to approve the ban.  One' said hc''d face linanc i.il hardship by having to p.iy to store his  truck c’lsc'wherc'. Anotht'r said he Ic'ars that his $40,000 collc'c tion of tools would bt' stolen it he put his truck in .1 stor<ige* area Another said most truckc’fs aren't home much, so th('ir trucks aren't p.irkc'd otte'ii on the* strc'C'ts and askc'd that neighbors bc' tillowc'd to ck'c ide whc'ther a big truck could be* allowc'd on their strc't't.
