Free Parking on Sunday Questioned

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

The proposed new adaptation of Chicago's parking meter deal was discussed Friday, May 24, 2013 during the first public hearing on the topic, without parking officials in attendance. Though the city asked top officials of Chicago Parking Meters LLC to attend, the group reportedly sent a letter back through their attorneys declining the invite.

The new agreement allows for free parking for much of the city on Sundays, but it expands the hours for parking meters in the Central Business District.

Even though the new deal has won the endorsement of 24 aldermen, many worry it may even be worse than the first.

"City estimates that CPM will not generate significantly more revenue from extended parking hours less free Sunday parking. Your thoughts?"
