Communication of the City Manager


Transmitting informational communication relative to the On and Off Street Parking Program Assessment Study. # 8.7B CM February 26, 2013


Recommend Approval and endorse in concept the recommendations:
1. To operate the parking system as an Enterprise Account with all expenses and revenues including meter citation collections being directed into the enterprise account,
2. To establish a new Parking Management Structure under the direction of an experienced parking professional to create a single point of contact for the oversight and coordination of parking planning, operations and finances, and
3. To place the governance of all parking-related functions into a single entity, such as a commission, and empower it with full authority over all aspects of on-street metered parking and off-street public parking garages and surface lots.
