The deal to lease The City’s parking assets may not be “officially done” yet but the rates for parking at The City’s parking garages are already on the rise.
One can only wonder??
Park-N-Lock Central which up until last week charged $0.90 per hour is now charging $1.50 per hour.
In addition sources tell Wake Up Wilkes Barre that the city has already hired 2 new parking enforcement officers, whose sole responsibility will be to ticket cars as soon as the meters time elapses.
It should also be noted said one source "that King Tommy held yet another secret meeting with the parking authority solicitor Murray Ufberg this week".
- What’s going on?
- If the bids aren’t even in yet, and we don’t even have a firm number at which we are being sold down the river, then why are we seeing rates almost double at our parking garages?
- Why do we need 2 new enforcement officers?
- Are we going to be like Chicago? Ticketing all hours of the early morning, and way into the late evening?
It’s looking ugly out there for the downtown business, and residents already, and there’s not even ink on paper yet!
- Just wait!
