MASON CITY – Simply coming to downtown Mason City and spending money is not enough to ward off a parking ticket.
A young woman from Osage discovered that Tuesday afternoon.
“My friend and I shopped at the mall, had lunch at Lorados. Here’s my ticket,” she said with a smile.
“I understand the ticket, but we weren’t gone that long, and we could have went anywhere,” she said.
Most of the downtown Mason City parking spots are two hours.
Several other vehicles had tickets Tuesday afternoon as well.
