Homeowners Fined Parking Car During Senior Bowl Getting Refund

Homeowners Fined Parking Car During Senior Bowl Getting Refund

Posted: Updated:
Mobile, AL - Some upset homeowners say they were unfairly punished for doing something they’ve done for years:  park cars during the Senior Bowl.  At least a dozen homeowners were reportedly fined $138 for not having a business license.  Some of those homeowners spoke out during Tuesday’s city council meeting demanding an explanation.  Mayor Stimpson was apparently on their side and asked the city attorney to look into the matter.

“Business permits to allow parking in your yard?  That’s ridiculous.  We are on it, we’ve asked the city attorney to try to fix this thing as quickly as possible,” says Stimpson.  It’s not clear why these homeowners were fined in the first place.  A complaint was filed last year by someone who was at the Senior Bowl asking for greater enforcement on businesses operating during the event.
