FOX 2 reported:

On Friday, St. Charles resident Troy Underwood and his family spent the day at Six Flags. He returned home and discovered a $25 parking ticket on his truck.

Underwood became outraged because the truck was parked in his driveway on Timberlodge Landing. The citation stated he blocked part of the sidewalk.

According to Underwood, he had been parking his truck just past his driveway for over a year and never had a problem. He says his biggest gripe from the incident is he didn’t get the answers he wanted from city and never got a warning.

Underwood’s neighbor, Mike Schimweg, agrees.

“Stuff like this should be addressed because you can’t just go out there and using these minor ordinances to collect revenue for the city,” said Underwood.

“I think it would be different if it was a major road…that would be different but this road goes into a cul-de-sac,” said Schimweg

St. Charles city officials say they are working with code enforcement on the issue.
