“The BPA has given Council the assignment to do what it should be doing”

It sounds to me like the BPA has given Council the assignment to do what it should be doing all along, which is to look at innovative parking programs so that the parking burdens are lessened for residents — in particular, small businesses and visitors to Bethlehem. Asking the City to “put money into the program” is double-dipping by the BPA in my estimation. It’s their responsibility to fund the parking system, not ask the taxpayers to fund it on top of increased meter rates, increased fines, and increased garage rental rates. Sometimes I can’t believe what I’m reading and hearing from that authority.

  1. Dana Grubb makes good points, although I don’t think the BPA has given Council any assignment. I would hope and think Council already has the responsibility to explore innovative programs for the benefit of the residents and visitors of the City of Bethlehem, parking included. The BPA requesting funds seems rude.
