(KMOV) -- Kirkwood city council members are thinking about spending over a million dollars for new parking spots in the city's downtown area.
Council members are considering this measure due to the continuous complaints they receive about the lack of parking in Downtown Kirkwood.
It is estimated that the parking project would cost 1.25 million dollars of tax money. The plan entails purchasing two buildings with the tax funds and then tearing them down to expand parking.
Residents in the City of Kirkwood remain at odds on the project. Some think it's a waste of tax money, others say parking is a pain and want the issue resolved.
Five of the seven Kirkwood City Council members agreed to move the parking project forward.
A final decision could be made early next month.
