Our resident "newbie" in Texas found her first problem:
Yesterday, we attended our first neighborhood civic group meeting. It’s part of our campaign to educate the public on parking within the city .
Needless to say, they didn’t like us! They were upset that parking meters were placed around the local community college (about 5 years ago), yet the private university that is not too far away has no meters. They claimed we were charging the poorest students to park, but the well-off students were not paying a dime.
You should know that we don’t have meters around the private university because the city councilmember over that area put a stop to it. The civic group is demanding that we remove the meters around the community college. How would you recommend handling? Thanks!
