The city of Malden delayed again the final public hearing for a proposed resident sticker parking program. The hearing is now slated for 7 p.m. Oct. 22 at the Ferryway School.
Current residents would receive the sticker free if they are up to date on their excise tax payment, and would have to buy a sticker only when they replace their vehicles.
A full structure of potential fees and rules have not yet been worked out by the city council, which is in the second year of its deliberations on the topic after a similar, more complex proposal to institute the parking structure failed to garner enough support.
Mayor Gary Christenson brought sticker parking back to the fore as part of a plan to address public safety issues after a spate of shootings this summer.
