Bait N Switch

RECEIVED Fri., May 8, 2015

Dear Editor,
    The city is in the process of removing parking spaces from West Fourth Street. They have put plastic wrap over machines to pay for parking and have signs up saying No Parking – Bus Stop. However, they failed to remove the PAINTED PARKING spaces right next to the bus stop. They are ticketing folks who park in the painted spots whether they pay for parking from a different meter or not.
    Fine to remove the parking spaces, but the city actually needs to REMOVE THE PAINTED SPOTS so as to stop unknowing citizens who have been using those spaces for some time. It’s also unclear if the meter machine was broken, out of order, or what. There is plenty of room for the buses – they were stopped in the nonpainted parking places. Does the city really need to stoop to baiting its citizens?
