City Council Discussing Meters on Main Street Again

It looks like parking meters on Main are being considered again by the City Council.  They were discussed for some time at the 1/6/14 workshop/meeting.  Instead of "old school" coin machines, the City Council is looking at "smart" meters.  So, when you park on Main, you would walk to a one of the 10 or so meters, pay for some amount of time, and enter your license plate.I would love to hear more from this community about your opinion on this issue?  What are the pros and cons?--GregSee More
