The Prince George Free Press has an interesting take on city council’s decision to bring back pay parking downtown:
“Council’s decision to possibly bring back parking meters is purely a business decision. The bottom line has been negatively impacted by the removal of parking meters, so “bring ‘em back.”
It flies in the face of the “open for business” mantra of the current council and the increased focus of improving downtown, which has had a real impact over the past few years.
It was the business community that pushed, and pushed hard, for the elimination of parking meters. The rationale behind not having parking meters in 2007 hasn’t changed. All that has changed is the fact that council is scrambling to cut costs and/or increase revenue so that drives all decisions.”
