Twin Lakes will consider additional no parking zone during music festival

In reaction to a complaint from a Elizabeth Lane resident, Twin Lakes Police officials said they will consider the posting of additional no parking signs there during next year’s Country Thunder music festival.

The annual festival, located in Randall just across from the village’s west side, brings thousands of people to the area each July.

The Elizabeth Lane resident, speaking during citizen’s comments at Monday’s committee of the whole meeting, said they have had problems with people attending the festival parking on or near their property. When someone parked on their property last year, a Twin Lakes Police officer told them there was nothing that could be done because it was on private property, the resident said. This year, when someone parked in front of her house but partly on the street, she was told it constituted parking on the street and was allowed.

Police Chief Adam Grosz said parking on someone’s property without their permission should be considered trespassing and could be acted on by police. Parking on the street could be legal, but could be combated by posting of temporary no parking signs.

Grosz said the village could consider posting such signs next year on Elizabeth Lane as they do in other ares during the festival.

“We have done that in areas,” Grosz said. “It has worked pretty well.”
