Whose idea was this?
You have to wonder who had the bright idea to set aside eight parking spots in the lower part of the South Main Street city parking lot for Washington firefighters. It's not that people are typically fighting to find a spot in the lot, but before these spots were taken out of use, people did park there and plunk quarters in the meters. And I wouldn't even be bringing this up if firefighters from the station just up the alley from the lot were actually using these spots. But they're not. I have yet to see a single car parked in those eight spaces - day or night. Did anyone think to ask the firemen if they would use these spots, before they were set aside? I'm sure the signs on the meters weren't all that expensive, but every dollar is important when a city is on the brink of bankruptcy. Whose idea was this?
