Central Penn Business Journal: City rejected bid to keep HPA in charge

Central Penn Business Journal reports:

Harrisburg Mayor Stephen R. Reed and the union leader for Harrisburg Parking Authority employees sounded worlds apart Friday, even as the union leader said the strife could have been avoided.

Reed said the union is open to talking about his proposal to lease city parking garages for $215 million. In fact, Reed said, a meeting was scheduled the week of May 9 between the proposed parking-garage operator and the union.

Not so, said union leader Gail Lewis.

“We’re not talking to anybody,” Lewis said. “Our members told us they didn’t want us to.”
