Easton will add 17 new parking meters to Ferry Street in the neighborhood around .
City council's public safety committee on Tuesday night told the city administration to put together an ordinance that would create those metered spaces, according to the Express-Times.
Meanwhile, the paper reports that resident Terrance Miller has proposed a plan for the revenue those meters would generate. He suggested hiring a part-time employee to coordinate a program that would have work-release prisoners clean the neighborhood.
Miller estimated the meters would generate a little under $1,400 a month.
