WENTZVILLE, MO (KTVI) - There is parking pain in Wentzville and residents are complaining about high school students that flood areas around two schools with cars.

We're talking about Timerland and Holt high schools.  There is very little room for parking in the school parking lots, so many students who drive park their cars in residential areas. That's causing problems.

The people who live in the homes are complaining. That's why the city is considering limiting the areas and times for student parking.

One option the city is considering would allow for parking on streets in defined areas around the schools from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on school days.  Appropriate signage would be installed by the Public Works department and police will enforce the new parking rules.

There is a public meeting on the issue Tuesday night at Holt High School from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.   Any changes would start in the Fall.
