Dig Even Deeper

We ran this last year at this time and mused about whether or not another rate hike might affect the mayoral and aldermanic elections just a few weeks from now.  We never dreamed then that neither Mayor Daley, nor two of three Uptown aldermen, would be a part of the 2011 city elections.  And so the rate hikes march on.

Metered parking is going up in January, so throw a few extra quarters in the car so you don't get caught short.

Uptown is scheduled to go from $1.25 to $1.50 an hour, with LAZ making citywide adjustments to the parking boxes between January 3rd and 31st.  Be sure to check the box for the proper rates during the transition.

  1. The price to park for going shopping has surely taken a dent in the wallet. The machines take quarters and credit cards and hopefully they can be converted to be taking bills too.
    Maybe we can get President Obama to give the city a subsidy. Sure sounds like a very liberal idea to me.
