WITF: Harrisburg activist questions plan to lease parking facilities in the city

WITF reports:

The Harrisburg Parking Authority has approved a deal that would lease the city’s parking garages to a private company for 75 years, but the plan also needs to pass through City Council and the authority’s union. As both groups examine the proposal, one community activist is voicing his opposition to the plan. Darnell Williams, a self-described “City Council activist,” says he was for the parking lease before he read the actual document. He says he’s worried the private companies that assume control will take advantage of a clause that allows them to double parking rates twice each year.
