    Rusty Watson, a longtime pastor in the community, voiced his concerns over the rash of warning tickets written for those who park on the street in Meadowlark Subdivision off Beech Grove Road.

    Watson said he really needed some clarification on how the city police interpret the current regulations on parking on the streets.
