When the Mayor announced that paid parking was to be instituted before tourist season, it seemed that everyone was staring at her like cod stacked at a fish market. Lot’s of eyes, lots of empty stares. Perhaps, they were all used to past Mayors who make these grand speeches on inauguration day and never follow up.
Now, everyone is saying with a surprised look, "the City is actually going to do it?"
Now everyone is waking up as if from a deep sleep! They were asleep when the landfill was started. They were asleep allowing the giant wind turbines in. They were even asleep on The Green Community Act.
Amazing what the threat of a parking meter and the loss of a few quarters will do!
