parking meter #424 is broken. I called Kingston Treasurer to alert them. Was told they were aware of it. WHY DON'T THEY FIX IT OR COVER IT????
In what way is the meter broken? is it showing violation after you have paid? can we get an update on whether you have checked back on it?
Repairs are sometimes on a first come first served basis, and this just might be way down the list. or it could be a triage system, where they are handling bigger problems. It might be something they don't have money to pay someone to fix it. They will have to ask for money for repairs in the next budget if thats true, which pushes the repair out even further.
Im not trying to make excuses for a broken system, just trying to think of reasons to not get too upset and make it a crusade.
getting a ticket for parking there may be a good thing. you can bring it up in traffic court that the meters are broken and you have filed a complaint, and how it wasn't addressed in a fair way.
Just trouble shooting this for yah. Good luck just4me2, and let us know how it goes!
It bothers me that if they don't have time to fix it, they should have a way to mark it as "not in violation" instead of taking my money and still showing violation. They are aware of it; how much more money they make if they don't fix it. There doesn't seem to be any motivation for fixing it if no one complains! I want to motivate them to fix it, that's all!
Its been about 3 weeks, would you be able to stop by and see if its working yet since you are in that area?
I can't check to see if it has been fixed.
