From the Daily News:
A Queens councilman hoping to land cash for city coffers said the Port Authority won't lift a ban barring the city from towing parking scofflaws at the city's two major airports.
Councilman James Sanders Jr. said the city misses out on much-needed funds since marshals, who tow the worst parking offenders, aren't allowed in lots at Kennedy and LaGuardia.
That's 29,000 spots where scofflaws can park worry-free.
"I'm disappointed," said Sanders (D-Laurelton). "I always think that reasonable people should reason together. Both are reasonable, and both are stuck on their positions."
Sanders said he asked Port Authority officials on Feb. 22 to reconsider the ban. But the Port Authority made it clear that rescinding the restriction was "not a priority issue," he said.
Critics have long slammed the city for failing to tow cars with certain out-of-state license plates, noting the city loses out on millions in unpaid parking fines.
But they support the airport ban since it cuts down on traffic and security concerns.
