CHENEY – One never knows what a citizen comment will do to public officials.
For instance, at the May 26 Cheney City Council meeting, a lone comment expressing frustration with parking in the city got members debating the pros and cons of suspending paid parking in light of the situation with coronavirus restrictions.
The comment from Robert Simpson expressed a desire to see parking become free throughout Cheney, including around Eastern Washington University where most meters are located. Simpson was apparently unhappy this hadn’t happened earlier during the pandemic.
