Nelson's parking meter mess

This is in response to the Nelson parking meters.

Nelson city council really needs to get a real look at the parking meter issue. You raised the price for the screw up of purchasing insufficient buses. Now we have to pay $500,000 for your parking meter screw up?

Here’s an idea for you. You have 745 meters. Recalibrate them back down to say 50 cents an hour that way we can just use quarters again.

This is a small town with already higher than big city taxes. Do some math this time.
