Reader asks Will the Village Prorate Parking Fees for Tag Holders

” Purchasers of premium parking hang tags allowing for parking in the train station lot should be refunded a portion of their purchase price. I paid for 12 months of parking. Not 8-9 months. This project was surely known about when the tags went on sale in December 2018. Nothing was said to purchasers about this 1/4 year project which materially diminishes the value of a station parking tag (whose purchase price which went from $1000 to $1300 in the space of a year). “

“Right walk or leave early. As a resident who pays ever increasing taxes, over $200 a month to park in a lot for residences some of whom pay $35-55k year in taxes. All to get on a train that cost $300 a month that the commute has increased by at least 30 minutes a day, requires a switch to midtown, and are trouble prone.

The illusion of buying in RW as it is a commuter village is also becoming a tough sell. We bought here as the village used to support commuters and accomdate some of their requirements. All of this is driven by the ever increasing need for more and more fees to feed the out of control spending

Ridiculous planning and leadership”

Reader says, “Some of us have to get to work by train and have no option other to drive and park at the station”

What are we supposed to do? The lot is typically full before 6:45 am. Residents are just getting kicked around. Some of us have to get to work by train and have no option other to drive and park at the station.

Why didn’t the village preplan this and not issue non resident stickers to reduce the number of cars? There are ways to plan things. Really poor leadership, planning, and just a slap to commuters already stressed by a tough train ride

Unacceptable leadership we need a solution
