Failure to pay parking tickets could get you the boot

The city council could vote on this Monday night. I'm following this story because the move comes from a KY3 investigation we did back in November.

Essentially, we found that you don't have to pay your parking tickets because the city doesn't have adequate procedures to enforce the law. Some people had racked up more than a dozen unpaid parking tickets in the last 2 1/2 or 3 years. However, we couldn't check the previous years because the city throws out anything older.

Anyway, I know people don't really want to get booted, but on the flip side, do people want their tax payer dollars go to city-paid employees, who essentially don't see their work pay off?

Please feel free to discuss...I don't have an opinion on the boots, but I do think taxpayers would probably like to see the city do away with some waste.
