The Derby Parking Garage is not in danger of collapsing, but there are 64 spots in the structure where the potential for falling concrete poses a threat to people and vehicles.
Those spots should be kept off-limits and the city should set up barriers to keep people away, according to a report issued Tuesday (March 4) by Prime AE, an engineering firm in Rocky Hill.
In an effort to keep concrete from falling on people and cars, the Aldermen voted Tuesday to keep the garage closed until the Derby Parking Authority can give the Aldermen a plan on how the authority will address the 64 trouble spots.
