Comment of the day

"It is my understanding the money does not come primarily from meters. Instead, it comes from valet companies paying to occupy metered spots. However, the point is missed entirely by the Land Use Committee. A government is not a business and is not charged with generating revenue for the sake of profits. A government is charged with providing services. Services cost money. Revenue is generated for that sole purpose. Let's talk about services then, we can talk about revenue as a function of providing services, not the other way around."—MiamiBeacher [Will Lummus Park Shrink To Save Ocean Drive Meter Money?]
