It seems both actions were motivated by the same problem. Although **DO NOT MAIL CASH** is clearly stated on the back of a parking ticket, people have been sending in $10 bills in payment of their $8 tickets. The City then must expend "administrative time and expense" to locate the payer and return the $2 overpayment. Either of the legislative actions would eliminate the problem, but why not do both?
