This car parks nightly, illegally, in front of my building. I called and spoke to parking enforcement today. They told me that if a person can’t find parking and has a zone sticker, they are allowed to park in a no parking zone. That’s insane! It really isn’t difficult to find parking around here, and after seeing this car dozens of times in this spot over the last year, it’s obvious that they’re treating this as their own personal parking spot.
311 routed me to parking enforcement today, and they routed me to a supervisor – who is in vacation until mid-January. That supervisor’s voicemail gave a another for another supervisor, and that number is of course disconnected.
Have you or anyone else heard of this unwritten (maybe it’s written??) rule that parking restrictions only apply some of the time?”

I didn’t think the Mount Pleasant ANC could get any worse, and then a shouting match erupted between two commissioners at the November meeting. The Library police had to break it up. This time they were fighting over a resolution to support paid family leave. Jack McKay had vigorously opposed the resolution in 41 emails to ANC commissioners, arguing that “it will please some constituents to pass a motherhood resolution that advises that there be a Paid Family Leave program, of some sort. But that’s a done deal, and therefore a pointless exercise” (In fact the Mayor and the Post editorial board are trying to kill the legislation). (more…)
