Seven Council Members Tell Suhm: Find Some Way to Allow Free Public Parking at City Hall
Seven council members have signed a memo to Dallas City Manager Mary Suhm telling her to figure out some way not to bar the public from parking in the garage underneath Dallas City Hall (well, the fountain, actually). Unfair Park was told that more members would have signed it, but City Attorney Tom Perkins asked that a majority of the council not sign resolutions that could be viewed as thwarting provisions of Texas law on open meetings.
Angela Hunt, Jerry Allen, Sheffie Kadane, Pauline Medrano, Delia Jasso, Dave Neumann and Dwaine Caraway signed the memo, which was sent to Suhm today and follows after the jump. It says: "Citizens should not have to pay a fee to visit the seat of their municipal government; this discourages active participation in public discourse."
