Beacon is a walking city one mile long. Why put in ugly meters which would only keep people from coming to Beacon.
Who pays for installation costs and upkeep? Who checks on the
Meters? Who picks up the monies every day and keeps track of credit card and wireless data? The City would have to hire a person and pay salary -health benefits-retirement benefits etc.
Just look at the fiasco in Poughkeepsie.
We have around 200 signatures on petitions at this time. Petitions for signing are available at Beacon Reads and Flora
Both located on Main St. Also can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to voice your opposition.
The two hour parking rule is not being enforced -why would it be any different for timed meters
