42 18801541 Do You Absolutely Love PARKatlanta? Uh...No!

Citizens of Atlanta have been enfuriated by PARKatlanta and their high priced parking meters for almost a year now.

Atlanta may be talking again about canceling their contract with the private parking company.

Councilman C.T. Martin believes that it may be time to look at the contract because of the numerous complaints from Atlanta citizens about outrageous parking tickets.

However, in order to break the contract with PARKatlanta, it would cost the city between 5 and 15 million dollars.

Atlanta residents have been complaining about how aggressive the parking enforcers are when issuing parking tickets in order to collect more money.

Councilman Martin gives some examples of the complaints the city has been receiving.

City Council member Michael Julian Bond agrees that it may be time to reconsider the contract.

It would be up to Mayor Kasim Reed’s administration to cancel the contract.

What do you think? Let us know answer today’s poll.

    They should never have voted to have an out of state company collect taxes for Atl. This was stupid on the part of city council. Anytime you’re paid commissions for collecting, there is always room for corruption. I would cancel this contract, and let this company sue me and show just cause for the city to continue to honor a bad contract. Like I have said in the past, the current political party system that we have are a bunch of inept fools. Were the no local company that bid for this contract? You get what you pay for. Always taking the lowest bid is not always the best options. People should start boycotting the d/town area, or use Marta and see what they will do with the loss of revenues. I avoid going d/town at all cost. If I must, I will park and ride the transit system.
