The article you are making so many comments on is misleading and not providing details which is the nature of the press...the city is not taking from any other taxpaying money. It is allocated every year for parking marketing. The task force of WDI and DBA are simply providing their professional marketing and business experience and time for free to help the city implement a better marketing plan.
Remember unless you are willing to run for office, be civic minded, volunteer countless hours and then experience the never ending criticism from folks like you...you should be less judging.
