Residents penalized for where they live
To the editor:
I find it singularly ironic to see these two headlines together: Fiscal Creativity of City Staff Applauded, and New Parking Fee Likely to Draw Some, Jan. 19 Capital News).
On one hand staff has probably cut the budget as much as possible but has found other sources of revenue.
One other comment: It’s is just plain wrong to charge for parking permits for residents living along the hospital and the rest of the areas mentioned in the article. Where else are they going to park?
And, while I am on a rant here: Handicapped permits should only be paid for once instead of having to be applied for every three years.
