City parking operations don't make money. They lose it

Are City of Sault Ste. Marie parking operations missing the mark? Concerned that downtown parking meters and parking lots cost the city $229,000 last year, two city councillors are asking for a special review of the situation.

Are City of Sault Ste. Marie parking operations missing the mark?

Concerned that downtown parking meters and parking lots cost the city $229,000 last year, two city councillors are asking for a special review of the situation.

"Downtown business[es] have an interest in maintaining the availability of parking on downtown streets and in the downtown municipally-owned parking lots," says a resolution to be presented at Monday's City Council meeting by Ward 3 Councillor Matthew Shoemaker and his Ward 1 counterpart Steve Butland.

They're asking City Council to strike a committee comprised of a city councillor, a member of the Queenstown BIA, the city's manager of transit and parking, and the planning director.
