Parking Issues

Friday, September 5, 2014

My name is Todd Tucker and I live just north of Chattanooga, in Cleveland. My wife and I take advantage of downtown Chattanooga on Sundays and Mondays as those are the days I am able to make time to do so.

I thought the idea to use a mobile app to pay for parking was a stroke of genius. This saves people from having to take cash or credit/debit cards out in a public parking establishment. I revived a "Notice of Past Due Parking Citation" on 09-04-14 for parking on 08-25-14. I used the mobile app on this day and my wife and I had to take time out of our busy schedule to call and straighten this out. Can not the person that took the time to take a photo of my license plate have access to the payment records?  Is this the way your company always conducts business?

I will not care to walk several blocks in order to avoid parking in one of your lots from this point forward. My wife and I should not have to have the hassle of getting a letter threatening "additional penalties or legal action" when we conducted ourselves as we should. The problem here is your company making threats when YOU are in the wrong.

This is ridiculous. In fact, Congress has only completed the full budget process four ... (click for more)

Silence From Rhonda Thurman

I find it deplorable that Rhonda Thurman is, once again, voicing her opinions so quickly and so vehemently.  She seems to be the one school board member that wants media and/or press coverage every time the opportunity avails itself.  However, when it comes to responding to personal emails sent directly to her…she zips her lips. I, as all of the citizens of Hamilton ... (click for more)

Grohn Says Integrity And Ethics Lacking In Berke Administration

Mayoral candidate Larry Grohn criticized controversies and instability coming from the mayor’s administration as a sign of unethical leadership and a lack of integrity. He said, "These scandals lay out the simple fact that it is time for new leadership which is accountable to the people." Councilman Grohn’s criticism comes after the independent auditor’s release of a memorandum ... (click for more)

CSAS Gets Defensive In Win Over Boyd-Buchanan

High school basketball is still in the early stages of the 2016-17 season, but CSAS coach Mark Dragoo is already seeing improvement from his team and they’ve only played four games. The Patriots are always a good team with lots of quick, athletic players who can shoot well and play sticky defense. That was the case on Friday night at Boyd-Buchanan as the Patriots shot well ...

Bradley Girls Stave Off Stone Memorial's Upset Bid, 48-46

The Bradley Central Bearettes’ ninth straight win to open the high school basketball season was their toughest to date.

After a turnover ... (click for more)
