Beware Illegal Parking in Sloatsburg

John Mack, Trails Chair

The Trail Conference alerts all hikers that even short-term parking is forbidden in the municipal lot located behind the hardware store on Route 17 and Mill Road just west of the railroad tracks in Sloatsburg.

As the law stands the police have no choice: violators will be ticketed and towed. Residents pay a fee to use this lot and a local business has complained vociferously.

The parking ban includes short-term parking while waiting for the arrival of bus passengers as well as longer term parking.

The police are working with the town in an attempt to define an allowable parking place.
