Merchants impatient for parking meter fix

Penny Coles Niagara Advance Although Town staff seem to think most parking issues in the downtown core have been resolved, merchants are becoming increasingly frustrated and impatient that the problems that plague visitors trying to pay at meters are not going away. Ruth Aspinall, long-time owner of a Queen St. restaurant and store, says she's had enough of tourists who come in to yell at her because they are having problems paying at parking meters. "I can't tell you how many people say they're leaving and never coming back because they're frustrated," she says. "And I'm not the only one hearing that." Tourists "are angry at me and my staff and there is nothing we can do about it. They yell at us like it's our fault, but we didn't create this problem and there's nothing we can do to fix it." The Town doesn't seem to be in much of a hurry to fix it?although town staff have said most problems have been resolved, she hasn't seen any improvement, she says. See Page 3
