The Friendly City Gets Friendlier

The Common Council on Tuesday night approved an increase in the penalty for getting a ticket while parked at a meter. If your meter expires and the one of the ubiquitous parking officers gets there before you do, paying the fine will soon cost $8 instead of the current $6. This was part of the Board of Estimate and Apportionment's plan to balance the budget, and all the aldermen present at the meeting last night approved the increase except David Marston (First Ward) and Abdus Miah (Second Ward). Wanda Pertilla (Second Ward), Sheila Ramsey (Fourth Ward), and Chris Wagoner (Third Ward) were all absent from last night's meeting.

  1. Is there free parking on Thursday evenings and all day Saturdays? For many many years that was the case. And free parking from Thanksgiving til Christmas too.
