Here’s The Scoop …. ABOUT THAT PARKIN’ PROMISSORY NOTE …. Madam Manager …

AT THIS “RATE” ….IT’S NOT GOIN’ ANYWHERE….PUN INTENDED!….

Dear Readers….Unless I missed a major change to the 2009 Parking Permit Resolution…it looks like LBTS Town staff gave away 2010 Residential Parking Permits at bargain rates… to some lucky residents…saving them 29 bucks!…

Last winter…the Commission changed the rates …with the final change in June…Annual Residential Parking $50/ Annual Beach Permit Parking $20…It was the subject of countless Town meetings and the disparity in cost between the reduced rate for the “CIC- FOG” (Friends Of Gang)…for beach permits vs the residential permits…

But we hear that those who went in to purchase theirs were charged $21 for Residential/ $21 for Beach!….($21, where did that # come from?)….OOPS!….

A look online to confirm the correct amount…forget about it!…

The Town website…as of 10/4/09…shows parking rates for meters …not updated/ parking rates for permits $17.88 annual permit (no beach permit)…not updated..

Town Codes…stops at Ordinance 2009-17 …March 24, 2009… it’s from 2003…annual permit $14.00……no help there …

So I sent in a Public Records Request…..

Steve, I need some clarification on the parking permits that were increased. I believe it was $50 for residential parking (annual) starting Oct.1, 2009/ $20 for beach (annual) starting Oct,. 1, 2009.
Please provide the backup and the resolution.
My understanding is Town Staff just gave out to a resident a resident permit for $21/ and to another resident a beach permit for the same $21.00
The Town Website still shows the OLD resident amt. for permit/ old prices for parking at the the meters/ and still lists Sister Cities which is no longer a Town sponsored org.
Let me know if it is more than $20 for my request/ and as always please acknowledge receipt of this request.
Thank you, Barbara Cole
