Kankakee has a lesson for Chicago

Rich Miller makes a comparison between the parking meter privatization in our city and the day Kankakee installed parking meters on their mainstreet over 40 years ago. It didn't work out so well.

Let's hope that Ald. Lyle or any of the other Aldermanic aspirants doesn't make the comment that elder Alderman Bernard Stone said about the merchants in his ward about parking meters installed on one commercial strip:
As for the businesses along Touhy, Alderman Stone says they’ve been lucky until now to have no meters. Now, their luck has run out.
Well come on, your business owners have a concern you have to address Ald. Stone. Are you trying to drive them out of your ward?
