SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Struggling to fill a $21 million budget shortfall, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency officials are putting driver’s on notice: expect more parking tickets.
The agency said Monday it had budgeted $99 million in parking ticket revenue this fiscal year, but that its parking police have not written enough citations.
MUNI spokesman Paul Rose tells The San Francisco Chronicle that the agency will be redeploying its ticket issuers “to bring in the most revenue for the agency and the city.”
The agency reported it was up $9.6 million in anticipated expenses, and is down $11.6 million.
A formal presentation of the new budget plan was scheduled to be presented to MUNI’s governing board on Tuesday.
