Must have been "beer-thirty" on "Casual Friday" last week when Mayor Francis Slay dreamed up his latest initiative. According to his blog, Slay is proposing meter-free parking downtown beginning each workday after 4 p.m. The mayor is calling the program "Happy Hour" parking.
Now, I'm no teetotaler and -- like everyone -- I hate paying meters. But Happy Hour parking? Really? Why not call the program: "Drive Downtown and Get Wasted, Parking is on Me"?
Below see RFT's exclusive video of Slay and the boys shot minutes before they hatched the happy-hour parking initiative.
