Ask and ye shall receive:
The City Council on Tuesday didn’t debate the issue and the discussion lasted less than 15 minutes, but the 6-5 vote indicated how controversial leasing these public spaces has been behind-the-scenes.
The city built the garage for the Hilton in a public-private partnership with Thompson.
The rate the Beach will charge Thompson is less than the $1,080 a year that the city markets for a reserved space and lower than the $1,275 annual fee the Beach’s parking staff initially recommended.
As I mentioned last week, the speed of this sort of gives me the creeps.
