1. The Dallas City Council is considering regulations on parking lots that “boot” cars for non-payment. I would like them to decide what to do on this issue soon, because I have my own plans to start booting cars that take up two spaces at The Monk. You know who you are.
2. A city auditor says Dallas has left nearly a half a billion dollars on the table in not collecting delinquent court fines and traffic fees. Some rightly point out that since most ticket cases are dismissed for lack of evidence or because the officer doesn’t show when it is contested, these fines weren’t really ever due to the city. I would like to ask the city to return the $750 I paid, because, honestly, I had no idea how easy it was to get a ticket dismissed.
