201 Miles to Springfield: Emanuel, Chico, Braun critisize parking meter deal

November 11, 2010

The Chicago Tribune’s Clout Street reports yesterday that three mayoral prospects critisized the parking meter deal and the use of its proceeds.

According to Clout Street Emanuel (D-Old Ravenswood) said the meter lease “didn’t work.”

“I do have a problem because the money was not used for its original intended purpose, which was to invest in key infrastructure, investments in making the city a more productive city economically so you can grow jobs,” he told Clout Street.

Chico and Braun also critisized the deal and the handling of the revenue from it by the city.
