Dave Thompson recently wrote “Vernon visitors could go home with a smile instead of a sneer,” if we were to remove our parking meters.
Are they sneering because they had to pay $1 for an hour of on-street parking?
Is this the kind of tourist/visitor we want?
The kind of person that is put out by a couple of dollars for the on-street parking in our wonderful downtown?
If the meters were removed, what’s to stop these apparently tight-fisted shoppers from staying the day?
Not the meter readers because Dave terminated them to save some tax dollars.
