  1. Employee parking should be at a reduced rate.
    The spots are basically unused otherwise, and you would free up spots in the CBD.
    Because we all know lots of meter feeders are employees and owners.

  2. spots were unused as documented on this blog over and over and over and over , time to move on

  3. Thank You James.
    Since they were unused over and over and over and over again, that’s exactly why offering a reduced rate for employees to park there doesn’t really cost much money, and would free up spots in the CBD.

  4. the spaces were discounted, those spaces are better used for shoppers

  5. So much depends
    upon

    a red wheel
    barrow

    glazed with rain
    water

    beside the white
    chickens.
