MSU Students May be Required to Buy City Sticker

Feb 24, 2012

Murray city officials decided to delay a vote yesterday on whether to require students to purchase a city sticker. The city council read the latest version of the resolution, which gives Murray State students a 30 day grace period to buy the sticker. The grace period would be extended to anyone who moves into or begins working in Murray after the June 1 deadline. The sticker would cost a pro-rated amount of 36 dollars for students if purchased between August and May; not having one could incur a 100 dollar fine. City officials claim stickers would increase revenues and make those who use city streets pay for upkeep either through sticker purchase or fines. The council delayed the vote in order to discuss policy enforcement. Many students working in Murray are already required to purchase the sticker.
