    One idea to raise funds would be to double the fines for parking violations, and quadruple them for snow removal ordinance violations. $200 sounds about right.

    Fines for parking on lawns, parkways, and on sidewalks should also be $200 per violation.

    In addition parking of all commercial vehicles and trailers should be banned from city streets overnight, and all properties zoned residential. Those fines should be $250 per violation.

    Maybe the library should consider letting a few of their dead weight employees go. For a job that requires them to sit on their rear ends eight hours a day, how many bodies are really needed? One old lady sits on her tail eight hours a day and scans photos in the library archives. The library could hire a college student part time to do that at probably a considerable savings. And I am sure automated check out could cut an employee or two from the useless roles.

    Parking enforcement is 200k in the hole, really? FFS if it can’t pay for itself it shouldn’t exist.
