Easy money for Surrey

I live in a very nice area in Cloverdale. The only thing that sucks is parking.

I live in a very nice area in Cloverdale. The only thing that sucks is parking.

After a long day at work, I return home and am unable to park outside my own home. I contacted the City of Surrey and suggested that residents should be able to rent designated parking bays outside their own homes. Their reply was that a system like that would be too costly to administer.

I do not understand. They would be getting revenue from the “rent” people would be paying and the system would administer itself by offenders being removed by using a towing company designated by the City of Surrey. Simple, isn’t it?

Wake up Surrey. Get this extra revenue and make residents happy.
