  1. Great picture of the coin meters. Did we ever get the full court ordered repayment from the Coin Boy, little Tommy?

  2. Oh yeahhhhh

  3. Meters and parking permits are the new boss in this town ,as policies are driven by the revenue streams that we all know are not to really create rotation of close in parking spots to benefit the towns visitors nor local businesses.That is .. the fact that employees contInue to repeatedly feed the meters outside of their business locations.Let’s at least accept that this just won’t change .

  4. All proceeds go to Everytown for Gun Safety.
