Let's say you parked at a meter and put in 50 cents, but only used about half of that time. Theoretically, the next guy who parks in your spot gets about 25 cents of free time and whatever they add. But what if municipalities were jerks and started cracking down on that?
Up in Saginaw, a county parking attendant was filmed on video by a local property manager resetting parking meters that had extra time on them. The county controller tells a local TV station that it's not part of his job duties, but it's not exactly a violation either.
The parking attendant hasn't saved nor earned any additional revenue for the county, so locals are wondering what's the point. I can tell you the point: Maybe he's just a dick with nothing better to do besides being a dick.
County commissioners will determine the next step in this parking debacle.
