Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Readers sound off on municipal parking fees, the Central Park Five and Facebook censorship”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Brooklyn: I am writing on behalf of myself and my neighbors to make everyone aware of the unbelievable and outrageous increase in the municipal parking permit fee near my home in Brighton Beach. Brighton Beach is a highly congested neighborhood providing little or no parking. It is a lower to middle income working class residential area on the South Shore of Brooklyn. The locals who park in the municipal lot do so out of necessity, not by choice. Parking in the area is very difficult all year round, but especially in the summer months when New York City beach traffic is in full bloom.

Up until this quarter, the quarterly rate for a municipal parking permit in Brighton was $330. It had been raised about 10 years ago from $300 to $330, (an increase of 10%) which I and most neighbors viewed as reasonable at the time. But now the quarterly fee has been raised to $500! From $330. That’s one hell of an increase!

There were many problems with this lot: no snow removal for nearly a week this past winter; garbage regularly overflows; cars are illegally in the lot and are rarely ticketed and/or towed.

This increase is absurd and difficult for many of the resident on Social Security, of which I am one! Michael Gunderson
