The City Council had planned to more permanently implement paid parking as a way to better manage our public parking in the entertainment district of Jacksonville Beach, FL.
Apparently, the cost of the implementation was not presented (this is my understanding, I was not present at any of the meetings) when the plan was approved.
Even though the costs would be essentially amortized over a long period of time, I'm not certain this is a great expenditure at this time - maybe the City Council should consider a lot by lot implementation plan instead?
