For those grumbling about paying for parking downtown and putting fliers out not to use the parking meters, vanquish away but please do NOT hurt our local downtown merchants by not visiting their establishments! Do not punish the small local business that we all love, and support! It's not 'their fault' the City voted to use parking meters to pay for the new parking garage that we've all been wanting for decades.
The City is trying to accomplish that goal, but not to the detriment of hurting our businesses downtown. If you don't want to pay for the parking meters, then park another block further away where there are no meters and walk. But please don't hurt our local businesses! They need our continued support and our patronage.
