I wonder what happened in Bellingham


I wonder what happened in Bellingham

The merchants are grabbing the pitchforks and torches. The City Council folded. Parking Meters are returning to a section of Bellingham, Washington. Read about it here.

The merchants complained that since new "Pay Stations"  — were installed in place of meters, their business was down 25%.  WOW.

The city is keeping the P and D (or space)  in the city garage. What went wrong here.

Could it be:

Not enough up front publicity for the new machines?

The Merchants are simply wrong as to the reason for the down turn.

Was there a rate increase at the same time?

All of the above — none of the above?

Inquiring minds want to know — anyone out there with an answer…
