What a bunch of turds. Nothing is more disturbing than petty greed on a big scale.
WTF with the parking situation in the swamp, it's nothing short of a calculated assault on our public commons and shrinking wallets. To whom do the streets belong to now-a-days? We have about five minutes remaining in the "quality of life meter".
Reading this article in a recent SunPost on the idea floating around miami beach city hall for privatizing meter-maids is like swimming through a cloud of stinging jelly-fish to find the truth.
“I have to tell you, I have a big problem with the way they treat people, the way they’re out there doing things,” Bower said Aug. 21. “They are our ambassadors out there. They should be polite to everybody.” mayor Bower
Basically the mayor and friends want to fire a bunch of unionized dumb-ass city employees then continue the harassment of the public using private armies of dumb-ass meter-maids. Then to top of the cluster-fck they want to have the cops take over the whole gravy-train of parking enforcement to avoid "corruption".
What a pile of contradictions and between-the-lines distorted Orwellian new-speak. We all know reporting is supposed to give us the facts with a little analysis for good measure, but let's face it, the parking situation blows and it will probably get worse.
The topic of privatizing parking enforcement will likely be discussed at the Oct. 7 commission meeting at Miami Beach City Hall.
