CASTLE HILL - Business owners in Castle Hill say business is being hurt by the excessive amount of parking tickets being given to shoppers.

Merchants along Castle Hill Avenue say they feel like the city is targeting them by handing out so many tickets, leading many shoppers to stay away from their stores.

Merchants say the borderline tickets are what has them so frustrated, not those given to protect public safety. They say it is understandable when tickets are given to cars parked in front of fire hydrants.
