Meters for our new parking lot?
« on: October 15, 2012, 05:40:55 PM »
How about some parking meters for our soon-to-be-completed parking lot?

This could be a new source of revenue for Fred's bottle fund.
What–me worry?

As long as they don't go in stalls of the enginehouse.  That could take it's toll on the steam crew.

Ooh, that's bad.  At least you didn't suggest putting them in the stalls of the new building.

They aren't steam powered, so I'd say no!

If the parking $$ goes into the bottle fund, Fred could be the yodeling singing Meter Maid.  :o

The best reason I've heard yet for not having meters.

Can you adjust the price on those meters?

We could set a yard rate for meters on the siding at Alna Center.  Would have made some $$$ from parking 320 during the Ice Cream Social.
