Lower Nelson’s downtown parking meter fees

Reading Tom O’Keefe’s letter to the editor finally gave me the courage to express my annoyance about parking meters.

Re: “Hall Street change would hurt business, Letters, June 28

Reading Tom O’Keefe’s letter to the editor finally gave me the courage to express my annoyance about parking meters.

I understand the City needs space and money — and who doesn’t — but the meter charges hurt the businesses and also the social live in our lively city.

Many times I pay my 25 cents just running into a store to get what I need and fail looking around for something else I could enjoy buying. According less sales for the store.

Also, I appreciate the social part of the town where I always meet somebody I haven’t talked to for a while, but no: “I have to run, my meter is out of time, so got to go!”

Okay, 25 cents is not the world, but how about 15 cents and I am sure I would stay around longer and probably spend more than 25 cents and make stores and my friends happier.
