build a parking structure and
it is also ecologically imprac-

"THE REAL intent and pur-
pose for University parking is
for the faculty and staff. The

Warrant Officer Goebel.
Persons with warrants are
"not nearly as actively sought
after as used to be," said Goe-
bel explaining "there are not
enough employes to handle the
job one reason being the finan-
cial state of the city."
Individuals usually comply
with warrants, Goebel declared.
City records show that $13,237
has been collected from war-
rants this past six months, $8,-
737 more than the city expected
for the entire fiscal year.
GOEBEL said, "The city,
however, does not want to
create any unnecessary hard-
ships on citizens. It is the re-
sponsibility of the individual to
attend to his tickets."
Fines can be negotiated at
the traffic violations bureau in
City Hall or the University's
Traffic Operation Bureau if
there is just cause based on
the court employe's criteria.
Failure to set a parking
brake violates state law how-
ever Goebel pointed out it is
