Commencing in September, fines will be issued for those not complying with parking restrictions around the Central Goldfields Shire.

Since early August, the Council’s Local Laws team has been patrolling the Maryborough CBD issuing warnings to motorists who overstay in time-designated spaces and who use disabled bays when not permitted to do so.
