Parking meter company sends huge bill to Chicago taxpayers

At the rate this company who bought the 75 year deal on parking meters is charging the City of Chicago, they will get back more from the city than they paid...not including the BILLIONS OF DOLLARS in parking meter money...and the former Mayor Daley is now paid a six figure salary by the law firm that handled this corrupt parking meter deal for a do nothing job...and nobody went to jail...AMAZING
The private company that runs Chicago’s parking meter system has sent City Hall another big bill, bringing the total amount of money it’s demanding from taxpayers to nearly $50 million.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported May 4 that Chicago Parking Meters LLC already had sent two parking-reimbursement bills to the city totaling more than $27 million. One was a $14 million tab for revenues the company says it lost when the city took meters out of service last year because of street closures. A second, for $13.5 million, seeks reimbursement for free parking the company says it provided to people displaying disabled-parking placards or license plates for the year ending Feb. 28, 2011.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration had been bracing for another hefty disabled-parking reimbursement bill through the end of February 2012. That third bill — for $22 million — arrived May 17, according documents Emanuel’s administration provided to the Sun-Times this morning.

The mayor is refusing to pay all three bills, which total about $49.5 million, and has disputed how the company calculated them. Chicago Parking Meters has declined to respond to questions about the issue.

Using a formula outlined in the 521-page meter deal championed by former Mayor Richard M. Daley, Chicago Parking Meters calculated that drivers who displayed disabled-parking placards and plates got $27 million worth of free parking for 2011-2012.

Rahm should appeal, then take a day off work and go for an administrative hearing. which will be frustrating as he sits and waits and waits only to have the administrative hearing officer uphold the $50 million dollar fine.

When the bill hits 500 million, Rahm will send in a check for 50 million and say he got a good deal!

I have told you people that he was smartrer than his father as he had purchased the City Council with $100,000 per year salaries and large expense accounts for part time work. He was featherbedding all his life with the pensions and the no show job. I was driving just west of the Loop looking for a non metered space and there was not one area with a non meter and the parking lots were filled as I had apppointment in the Loop t was going t be over two hours as the meters are only good for two hours. There used to some unmetered spaces and there are none. I don't blame the meter company at all for this mess. Also the parking lots are drying up near and in the Loop area making commerce a bitch.
