Tickets written for cars parked at school

NATCHEZ — The Natchez Police Department wrote several parking tickets Friday morning to Cathedral School visitors the department says were illegally parked in front of the school. The school was hosting grandparents’ day.

Detective Jerry Ford said he saw cars parked on the sidewalk and in the road obstructing traffic in front of the school.

Ford said Chief Danny White also saw traffic congestion in front of the school and instructed officers to write tickets to the illegally parked cars.

Ford said that a couple of people complained that Mayor Butch Brown had sent police officers to write tickets at the school, but he said that was not the case.
