Chicago Meters Working


Chicago Meters Working

The residents of the City of Chicago are finding that "Chicago Parking Meters LLC" the company that leased the city's on street parking operation is collecting up to three times the amount of money that was being collected by the city when it ran the parking operation. Does that surprise you?

A number of cities, large and small, except of course in Manchester, NH, (I can be taught), have difficulty with their parking operations. Whether its collections, citation management, or simply keeping the meters running, the job of on street enforcement isn't for the faint of heart.

CPM seems to be doing a yeoman's job in at least one area. I noted from "the expired meter" the windy city's own parking blog, that parkers in Chicago have noticed that the incidence of broken meters is way down. Seems the current parking management has made keeping meters working a priority.
