Federal Building Parking Targeted

The U.S. Marshal’s office in Coeur d’Alene has asked the city to permanently ban parking in front of the federal building.

Marshal Denny Scieszinski said the request was triggered by the deadly April 19 bombing of the nine-story federal building in Oklahoma City.

A Coeur d’Alene City Council subcommittee on Monday will consider the request to remove five parking spaces in front of the federal building.

Temporary barricades have been placed in front of the Coeur d’Alene federal building since the Oklahoma City bombing, but local authorities said there have been no threats.
