Anyone who parks inappropriately (anywhere other than a designated parking spot) in the credit union lot will be told to leave. NO EXCEPTIONS.
*You can park on the street opposite Boneyard, but if you do, make sure your vehicle is completely off of the roadway. Any overhang onto the street and you will be towed.
