The New Parking Kiosk - pros & cons - First the pro's-you can park in any spot, can use debit/credit cards. now the cons - Can't use cards & money back to back, must use either or. If you use money & try to follow it with a card, it won't let you. it will print a ticket. If you don't use all the time up, you just lose it unless you drive somewhere else that has a kiosk.It won't accept one of my cards (no idea why, it just does not like that card), it won't accept wet bills (if it's raining & your bills get wet, it will spit it back at you, only gives a few minutes to get more moeny & then will print ticket. Once ticket is printed,you can't put in more money because the time will start all over again. Ain't technology grand?
Unfair Charges & awful response time - my empty property was broken into & pipes & water meter was stolen. The water dept had already turned off the water but are still charging me for service chrg & estimated usage for almost 2yrs now. An investigator came & confirmed the pipes & meter missing, no water & no occupants. I appealed the bill,it took 3 months to get a response. I was told that I am still responsible to pay for water that is not being used even though they turned the water off & have it on record. The bill is now an outrageous amount due to penalties & interest. I am appealing to the Tax Review board, and am waiting for a court date. I am willing to pay a fair amount but to pay for water when it was turned off is ludicrous.I don't think any of this is fair. Also, they take forever to give you an answer. The property is in a depressed area & not worth much, but I am trying to sell it but the water dept took so long giving me an answer, that the buyer backed out. They also want me to buy a "no water usage permit" that cost $100. Talk about insult to injury. I can't believe the way people are treated by this dept. I really feel helpless. The only reason I rated them a "1" is because there is nothing lower, like "sub-zero".
