There are questions about whether the city’s new parking policy is LEGAL!
The Atlanta City Council will look at problems with the city’s parking enforcement program on Monday. City Councilman Kwanzaa Hall has called for a 60 day moratorium on booting cars until complaints can be discussed. Dozens of people showed up at a city council work session late Friday morning to express their frustration with PARKAtlanta, the company contracted to enforce parking violations.
Councilman Hall said the program needs to be tweaked because of complaints of inconsistent ticketing and confusing signs. There are other council members like Keisha Lance Bottoms who question whether the program is even legal since the people handing out tickets are not police officers.
We’ll see on Monday whether people who park in Atlanta will get a break until the City Council figures out the next move.
