Gregg County to study parking around courthouse

LONGVIEW (KYTX) - Commissioners in one East Texas county took steps today that might lead to a parking garage near its courthouse.

Gregg County says its looking for a consultant to study whether there's a parking problem around its courthouse in downtown Longview. Commissioners haven't agreed to build anything until a feasibility study shows them the most cost-efficient plan.

People working at the courthouse like Mary Johnson say they're ready for some relief, "Especially when the jury comes, because they don't have a place to park when they come," Johnson says.

The county has set aside up to $5 million for a parking solution within the next three years, but so far -- no deals have been signed.
