The Traffic Commission isn't willing to remove meters from the newly opened Columbus Street surface lot but is willing to discuss an overall examination of the entire meter system.
Berkshire Nautilus Owner Jim Ramondetta and Manager Glen McBurney have been fighting the city over the new meters. Prior to the garage being torn down and replaced, there were free three-hour public spaces.
The commission in January voted to raise the price in the Center Street lot by $10 but couldn't address the St. Anthony lot because it had not been put on the agenda. On Monday, the commissioners agreed that permits in both lots should cost the same.
Working off a report by Stantec Consulting Services, the commission determined that a crosswalk would not be safe in that area and that the issue of students crossing Church Street might better be addressed through changing bus routes.
