Harrisburg mayor proposing outsourcing parking

Patriot News reports that Harrisburg mayor Stephen Reed proposing leasing operations of the city's parking garages and meters to private operators. The deal would fetch $215 million for a 75 agreement. (HT: Grassroots PA)

While the city of Chicago recently contracted out a handful of their parking garages, such lease deals are rare - because there are almost no other government-run parking facilities in other states.

As I have pointed out before, 41 out of 46 government parking "authorities" in the US are located in PA . And the $66 million in expenditures by Pennsylvania's parking authorities in represents 98% of the US total.
