I saw in today's Maryville Daily Times that the City of Maryville is going to eliminate parking meters downtown. Good for them. According to the article, they don't don't work and even when they do they don't pay for themselves.

Some place where I lived at some time or other the city was faced with a similar problem. Instead of getting rid of all the meters the meters were assigned to local charities. So yes, parking was free and they did not write tickets but those metal boxes became cash cows for local charities.

Excellent idea.
