“(We) also make sure the meters are being turned over.” Murphy, who’s also a business owner in Pottsville, said he hopes it’ll bring more people downtown along with creating some good will. “What were trying to do is make it user friendly,” he said. Murphy told Eyewitness News that the program will cut down on the number of tickets the authority hands out, which means a loss of revenue for Pottsville. He said hopes the turnover of people means more business for local shops. “That’s our hope,” he said. “That we let the people know that downtown Pottsville is beautiful. There’s a lot to offer in downtown Pottsville.” Murphy said the program is only two days a month because they don’t want people to abuse it. Copyright 2014 Nexstar Broadcasting, Inc.
