Still a bad idea
September 21, 2011 | 11:41 AM

Years ago we set aside the parking funds to buy and build a parking garge. Then the next group came in and saw all the money and decided to use it instead of raising taxes. Still no parking lot and it has been 20 years.

Now there looking at taking 5 years worth of revenue and buying this new parking sysytem, which in three or four years will need to be updated. Phones and computers don't last 3 years so what makes them think you won't need to spent more money to update these meters. Your not going to receive any parking revenue for 5 or 6 years while you pay for this.

It makes no sense to buy this. For the next 5 or 6 years the only people to benefit will be the company selling the system, not the tax payers of Lake Geneva. Wake Up you don't know what is going to happen in the next few years, can you really afford to give away 5 years of parking revenue?
