Independent semi-trailer trucks waiting to enter the Smith's warehouse and plant at 500 W. Sugar St. have caused safety concerns for area residents. As a result, the City Council has approved new parking restrictions for the street.

City manager Alex Jensen said Smith's will be making a change in their entrance design to keep more big trucks off the road.Sugar Street is a narrow road. The council has approved a no parking zone on its west side, extending north toward the "S" curve. This is expected to improve sight along the road.
