Parking revenue

In September, 2,518 vehicles paid for parking in the Washington and Main city lot, with a net revenue of $5,931, said City Manager Jonathan Smith in his weekly report to the community, Oct. 7.
The city issued 225 parking citations city-wide, ten in the month were 225, with a net income of approximately $4,151, Smith said.
“Less than one percent of vehicles parked in the city,” he said.
By vote of the City Council, parking fee and citation revenue will only be used to maintain roads, sidewalks and parking lots in the city, he said.

    Ronald Reagan said “The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

    Now let’s talk about parking. Now that Clarkston finally has some magnet merchants for the commerical area, the local government feels the need to punish/fine people for visiting these fine establishments.

    Merchants – how does it feel to slowly have your former customers head to “free-parking-land”. Last merchant out of Clarkston, please turn out the lights!

    Parking isn’t free. Neither is the new stress on our infrastructure.
