Free Parking

City announced that parking meters in downtown will be covered today until Friday August 26.  For those who suggest they get removed permanently, the money from them goes back to maintaining the lots and streets in the city.  Would the city see enough of an increase in sales tax revenue collected from customers to offset the funds lost from removing the parking meters?  

The meters in the lot next to Quatros and 710 Bookstore were put in place to eliminate the problem of students parking there to avoid purchasing parking stickers for on-campus parking.  Student cars remained in place for several hours, stopping customers of businesses in the area from using them.
