In other action Monday, the council will receive a request  from Dr. Paige Temple to designate five parking spaces in front of Tarboro Pediatric Psychology  at 511 St. Andrew St. as one-hour  spaces between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Temple  says parking often is not available for patients or the four psychologists practicing in the building and told council in a letter that the spaces are full all day long.
