Commission hits brakes on parking meters


Commission hits brakes on parking meters


Date: July 5, 2011

The Sarasota City Commission voted 3-2 to bag downtown parking meters until Oct. 1 at its July 5 meeting.

The hiatus will allow city leaders to hold workshops to seek input from downtown merchants, many of whom said their businesses have been negatively impacted since May 23, when the meter systems went into effect.

For more information, pick up a July 7 edition of the Sarasota Observer.

  • I think as a full time resident of Sarasota we should be able to purchase an annual City of Sarasota Decal for our window to allow us to park anywhere without having to worry about the meters.

  • Never take the bags off. Enough economic distress already.
