Stockton Considers Hiring More Meter Attendants To Boost Revenue

STOCKTON (CBS13) – There may soon be more meter attendants writing parking tickets in the nation’s largest bankrupt city.

Stockton city leaders are considering hiring four people to enforce parking rules in the city that would free up community service officers to help police officers with other matters.

However, some drivers aren’t thrilled about the idea.

“If you are not putting money in that parking meter, they are going to come around at least three, four times,” said resident Keisha Johnson.

City documents say adding the new positions could essentially pay for themselves in additional revenue generated by ticket fees.
