Parking ticket

Resident upset with parking ticket process in downtown Vernon

On the day of my parking meter ticket, I made several stops in downtown Vernon (five in total) to buy merchandise and conduct business.

I visited my accountant, my bank and four retail stores, each time diligently plugging the parking meters (closed to $6 in total).

I returned to my car after my last visit in the city centre to find a ticket on my window placed just three minutes after the parking meter expired.

This very same thing happened to me on four occasions. Wow, this guy’s good. He’s fast on the draw.

The bottom line is this treatment of Vernon residents doing business downtown may be good for city revenue but it certainly does not help out the business owners.

Is anybody at city hall listening?
