Who would have thought so many people would want to get their hands on a parking meter, considering that all I ever hear about them are complaints?

The City of Spokane is selling surplus parking meters for $35 each, just to get rid of them. And they’ve had an incredible response. One Street Department employee told me yesterday that the lobby was packed with people trying to get a meter. There are so many people that want one that they’re now asking you to please call first to put in an ‘order.’ The number is 232-8800 if you want one to give to that special someone for Christmas.
