Nacho to Vote for Parking Meter Rollback

Oakland Vice Mayor Ignacio De La Fuente plans to vote for the rollback of parking meter hours to 6 p.m., according to the Chron. De La Fuente’s decision will thereby provide enough votes to get the measure passed. De La Fuente was absent from last week’s council meeting when his colleagues could only come up with four votes, leaving the measure one vote shy of passing. In addition, Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan also appears to be ready to vote for the rollback, telling the Chron that the city should maybe also rollback the parking-ticket fine increase “as a good will measure.” Last week, Kaplan abstained on the meter-hours rollback. The council’s decision in June to extend meter hours, raising parking rates, and increase ticket prices prompted a strong backlash from Oakland retailers and consumers.
