A new twist in the parking meter debacle

Mayor Emanuel announced at the end of April some big changes coming to the city’s parking meter system. This week, Ald. Brendan Reilly, who represents most of downtown Chicago, officially wrote his dissent to the proposal and even suggested the city buy back rights to the meters. Turi consults Greg Hinz, political writer and blogger for Crain’s Chicago Business, as the two discuss Chicago’s current parking scene as well as the Emanuel administration’s policies on parking.
