The Downt own Merchant's Association has called a meet- ing fcir next week to discuss parking and lo appoint mem- bers to the committee respon- sible for Ihe study. The DMA asked to be repre- sented on tiio committee last month after city council had volcd lo change parking meter rales to five cents per half hour and 10 ccnls per hour with no more penny meters. Strong opposition to that change persuaded council la drop the proposal and retain (he existing rate o[ five cenls per hour and one cent for 12 minutes. A spokesman for the engi- neering department said I hat rale will not change at least until Aug. 15, the scheduler date for completion of the park ing review. At that time, council will re ccjve a complete review of jp crational costs comparing rev cmies and expenditures of Lhi existing system with proposef systems. Some thought is expected ti be given to eliminating park ing meters in the downtowi area, although the mayor am some of the aJderrnen arc op- posed to the idea.
