The TImes Union says this new system will in some cases quadruple the cost per hour to park. All of the 25¢ per hour meters on the affected blocks would go up to $1 an hour (for example, near the City Hall, Post Office, Library), as would the 50¢ per hour meters. And, prices could be raised for special events. Did any of our elected leaders talk about the desirability and effects of such large increases?
By the way, is Wallin really suggesting that people eating (and drinking) at Bombers drive to get to Aperitivo, which is only a few doors away across the street?

Although the police station is next door, the stabbing victim was treated inside the main branch of the Library, and the Library was cleared of all patrons and closed two hours early because of the activity. Crime tape was stretched to block both entry doors of the Library. I hope the Gazette will find out how the incident unfolded and why the Library became so involved in the incident.

Thanks for covering this topic. One possible solution to this problem is contained in a bill proposed again this year in the New York Assembly by District 92 Assemblyman, Thomas J. Abinanti. Assembly Bill A02300 would add an Article 3 to the NYS Public Service Code in order to regulate the cutting, topping and removal of trees upon rights of way by providers of electric service, setting up a commission that would make and enforce regulations meant to assure that tree maintenance is done in a manner that has a less destructive impact on our trees and removes no more of a tree than is reasonably necessary.
For more information and links to A02300, and for photos of a recently-over-pruned Stockade tree, see

Please insert either "higher" or "lower" after the word "percent" in the first clause of the third sentence. If you have the figure for the median price, would you also include that information. Thanks. (You can delete this comment once the edit is made.)
