S. News Of t The Day Special to The Courier. SCOTTDALE, Mar. 3.--At next Monday night's meeting of borough council the ordinance for traffic regulation will likely come up again. In conjunction with the ordinance committee, the stieet and police committee is drawing up regulations to be embodied in an ordinance that may meet with the approval oE all members of council. While tome councilmen favor parking meters on the principal streets it is understood that the merchants are opposed. For several years, this matter has been brought before the attention of council, but so far at has been unable to reach a satisfactory solution. It has been stated many times that the present ordinance does not have teeth by which Burgess A. B. Pickard can enforce any sort of traffic regulations. Some of the most common complaints are laclf of space to park in Pittsburg street, and double parking or even triple parking along various parts of the street, especially in the morning hours, when trucks are unloading at the stores.
