Basically DALEY screwed us on the PARKING METER DEAL... RAHM will screw us by fighting the PARKING METER DEAL by funneling $$$$$$ to his attorneys


The city of Chicago has been socked with some huge — and unexpected — bills from the company that runs the city’s now-privatized parking-meter system. Now, Mayor Rahm Emanuel says the city is fighting back — and it’s going to cost some money to do it.

Under the wildly unpopular deal that then-Mayor Richard M. Daley struck in 2008 to lease the city’s parking meters until the year 2084 in exchange for a one-time, upfront payment of $1.15 billion, the city’s taxpayers must reimburse Chicago Parking Meters LLC any time a meter can’t be used. Last year, the meter company says the street-closing tab came to $14 million.

Emanuel has refused to pay that bill. He’s also said no to another $35.5 million in bills the meter company submitted for reimbursement for two years of free parking that people with disabled-parking placards or disabled-parking license plates have gotten. Those with the placards or plates don’t have to pay to park.

“I do know the parking-meter management team now knows there’s a new sheriff in town,” Emanuel says. “Don’t send a bill just thinking we’re going to sign it. And don’t act like you’re in possession of information when the contract calls for something else. Those days are over.”

Emanuel has talked tough before on parking meters. But he says he’s doing more now than talk.

A key step: City Hall will spend more than $300,000 to develop computer software Emanuel says needs to be in place to fight the unforeseen bills stemming from the meter deal. Long-term, he says, the investment should pay off in savings.

So the city gave up 75 years of parking meter fees and spent it in 2 years. Seems like good fiscal management. Unfortunately, it looks like the fees charged back to the city will be greater than the original $1B received.

Daley came up with the TIF scheme and Rahm is running with it. We have all this money your talking about, it's sitting in banks and invested in Commercial real estate, but the union leaders won't call the Mayor out on it. WE HAVE THE MONEY! the scum times did a big story about how we all need water meters so Bridgeport Joe won't get a $100 break while these guys steal $900,000,000.

Now the Evil Racoon wants to play the "Man of the People" by trying to break the parking deal. Ain't gonna happen. He will spend countless millions fighting a losing case. And then we have fat ass Daley at the same law firm the city will be "fighting". All BULLSHIT!

Daley switched to a tan SUV now. Too many people were giving him the finger in his black police model.
We still get to pay for the car, gas, and bootlick drivrs, of course.

I never liked the Daley parking meter swindle.

That is a monopoly pure and clean. Why the fuck are tax dollars going to fight any of this matter?

Could no civilian lawyer (looking to get rich)not use the COMPANY? By pass the city in a suit and hit antitrust against the meter company themselves!

Rahm likes to use the tax roll for his city lawyers to fight 2nd amendment champs too. All for the children and the people right?

Still, it satisfies the Mayors unnatural, uncontrolled urge to not pay for something. He didn't want to pay his little $4000 mortgage on his house so he rented out, and it wound up costing someone $800,000 to make up for his residency mistake. Now he doesn't want to pay for the meters. When the meter thing happened, Daleys pants were full of crap because he thought the TIF cat was gonna get "out of the bag", They almost hung Madoff in Times Square for his ponzi Scheme. Daley thought he was gonna get "The Musolini" for the TIF's so to distract everyone he sold off the meters like a pimp sells his sister. The press wasn't as sweet on him then as they are on the Zionist Anti-Christ now. $900,000,000 in TIF and no pension for you.

Obama is loving this. Both his loyal drones are wasting tax dollars "fighting" each other. This is happy news for him.
