Pittsburgh City Council unanimously passed legislatoin that would keep parking enforcement at 6 p.m. instead of extending it to 10 p.m. on July 1, which had been called for under a previous plan.
As part of a plan to rescue the city's pension, the Pittsburgh Parking Authority was to boost its contributions to the city through extending parking enforcement and raising meter rates. The extension was originally slated to take place on Jan. 2, but was extended to July.
Councilman Corey O'Connor said he's received assurances from parking authority officials that the authority will continue to contribute to the city, even if parking enforcement isn't extended until 10 p.m.
He said he worried that extending parking enforcement could harm businesses.mobilehome - neigh_city - breaking
