GALVESTON — A week from the official start of the summer season, the city still is unable to pinpoint a date when it will begin charging motorists to park along the seawall.

Officials said in August the city could begin charging parking fees by Dec. 1. But in November, the city said it planned to launch the controversial program in March, before the busy spring season, a deadline that was publicized by Houston news outlets.

In January, Assistant City Manager Brian Maxwell reiterated his belief the program could be implemented before Memorial Day, but probably not in time for spring break.

Now, city officials are sticking to “early summer,” as a nebulous time frame.
