Oakland Council Punts on Parking Changes

The Oakland City Council early today postponed a decision on parking meter hours after failing to cobble together enough votes to rollback hours from 8 p.m. to 6 p.m.. According to the Trib, only four members of the eight-person council voted for the parking meter hours change – Pat Kernighan, Jane Brunner, Jean Quan, and Larry Reid – leaving the council one vote shy of what was needed. Councilmembers Desley Brooks, Nancy Nadel, and Rebecca Kaplan all abstained, after voicing concerns that the rollback would cost the city more than $1 million in revenues. Councilman Ignacio De La Fuente was absent.
