Thanks planning department of Halifax, for only consulting with the city legal team and high level staff RE a 10 year old parking rule that was never enforced until just this year. A rule no one has heard of until just now and suddenly "80 tickets in 3 hours" are being written by Parking Enforcement agents who are getting serious flak from people because they've also never heard of this rule. Not to say the rule isn't fair, because it is. The point is, no one from the city bothered to inform the public, which is entirely unaware of this rule. The rule states that no vehicle may occupy a zone (typically a block) longer than 2h, and at the end of 2h one must move their vehicle to an entirely new zone (typically, another block). One can no longer simply drive around the block and park in the same spot, or move their vehicle up a parking spot.
I hope you and the legal team receive as much 'feedback' from the public as Parking Enforcement has RE their decision to only consult with their legal team and not bother informing the public. Can municipal government be bothered to disseminate anything of use via social media? —city says chaching
