|In his State of the City Address, given on January 17, 2014,
Mayor Edwin Lee stated:
“And while we’re at it – if we’re finally going to take a comprehensive approach to Muni’s funding – let’s tear off a band-aid we applied in more dire financial times that made our residents’ lives a little more frustrating and expensive. I’m talking about “Sunday meters.” It generated several million dollars last year, almost half of it from parking tickets, and I hear about it. Nobody likes it. Not parents. Not our neighborhood small businesses. Not me. With a more sustainable approach to funding our transportation system, we can give our meters, our parking control officers and most importantly, our families a rest on Sunday. And so today I call upon the SFMTA Board of Directors to suspend Sunday meters in our City beginning with the new fiscal year. I’m grateful that Board Chair Tom Nolan has already signaled his support. Let’s stop nickel and diming people at the meter and work together to pass a transportation bond and vehicle license fee increase in 2014, instead.”
