(Festus) The City of Festus is looking to budget funds to improve parking along South 2nd Street next year, which in the long run will help improve parking on Festus Main Street. Festus City Administrator Greg Camp before anything can be done on Main Street, making parking better on 2nd Street needs to happen first…

Camp says residents may have seen a mock-up of what 2nd Street parking could look like on their social media sites. However, he says that’s not the final plan, it’s just a possibility.
