The city has started repainting twenty handicap parking spots across Fernie.

The late spring and heavy rains pushed the painting schedule back this year, said Dave Cockwell, director of operational services for the city of Fernie.

The city is currently repainting the white crosswalks as well as putting down the white background for the handicap spots.  Once those are completed, the switch will be made next week to putting down the blue paint for the handicap spots.

The repainting is part of the city’s annual maintenance occurring every year.
