Oakland May Change Course on Parking Meters

Oakland Vice Mayor Ignacio De La Fuente and Councilwoman Pat Kernighan say the city council made a mistake when it extended parking meter hours to 8 p.m. and plan to introduce legislation that would roll it back to 6 p.m. when the council reconvenes next month, according to the Trib. The council’s decision to extend meter hours and raise parking rates on June 30 sparked citywide outrage. Store and restaurant owners argued that the parking meter changes would hurt their businesses, which are already suffering because of the economic downturn.
