Brookline, Mass. reconsiders new parking meters
BROOKLINE, Mass.—Officials in Brookline are considering the removal of multi-space parking meters installed last year because of complaints.
The Boston Globe reports ( http://bo.st/I6xQZ4) that Town Administrator Mel Kleckner is proposing the removal of almost all of the meters. Kleckner says residents have said the meters are confusing and burdensome to older drivers.
The meters were installed in 2011 at a cost of more than $1 million. Motorists using the meters must return to their vehicle to display a printed parking receipt.
Kleckner says the city could replace most of the meters with single-space meters that accept coins and credit cards.
