Council rejects $1M parking plan, approves $1M in DPW spending

Updated 9:03 a.m. Oct. 1

A proposal to implement a new downtown parking system with pay-and-display machines was rejected by a 3-2 vote of the City Council tonight. (I wrote about the proposal here.)

The Council also unanimously approved more than $1 million in purchases of new equipment for the Department of Public Works and Parks.

The proposed purchases include about $555,000 in snow removal equipment, including a tandem dump truck with a plow, a payloader, a single-axle dump truck and two pickup trucks.
The approval also covers $194,000 for a street sweeper, a hybrid SUV, as well as $118,000 in equipment to maintain Hyde Park Golf Course, one vehicle for Hyde Park maintenance and a bucket truck for the city’s forestry department.

Here's the paperwork:
