From the NY Post:
Community board leaders are fuming that Mayor Bloomberg is about to yank their parking placards.
On Feb. 1, the city is planning to eliminate a precious perk that New York’s 59 community-board chairs have enjoyed for years — a pass that lets them park anywhere for free for three hours.
The board leaders are not ready to give up their treasured passes quietly.
“They got my service for 28 years. I think it’s quite insulting, whoever made this decision,” said Queens Community Board 7 Chair Gene Kelty.
“When the city asks me to come into the city [for a meeting], I’m not coming in,” he said. “You can send a car or I’m not coming in.”
While the passes are being nixed for volunteer board leaders, paid district managers will keep theirs.
