Tuesday I went to the local police station to fill out a form for reserved parking for an upcoming move in Columbia Heights. In addition to having to pay $55 to reserve a parking space – which seems excessive on its own – I got a voicemail today from a moving company who got my name/number from the public occupancy moving truck permit list offering moving services to me.
So unless I’m mistaken, I paid and reserved parking and the city has now given out my contact information. Surely this must be unethical on the part of the city? Is there something I’m missing here?”
