to rescind the proposed parking fee and to add back 2 aides that had been cut to balance the previous version of the budget

FinCom budget meeting in the fall may have other adjustments later but these are time sensitive

Padula - these two asks are indicative of the quality of the folks that we worked together with, their hearts are in the right place

Pellegri - are there no other priorities?
Ahern - there are other priorities but this was the time sensitive one; community impact, considering other increases in activity fees, where we could reduce this one, we'd like to. the Administration of the fee is also anticipating some problems for example with winter and snow, if the lots aren't cleared to allow for enough parking what do we do.
