Re: “Bill targets broken meters,” Jan. 9: Good for Mike Gatto and his legislation to bar cities from ticketing cars at broken meters. There is more than one broken meter on Ocean View Boulevard in Montrose which has been broken for months and months now. I tried calling authorities to alert them, but through multiple calls I could not find anyone who would take my complaint because it seems these meters aren't under any known authority or entity.
It's very frustrating trying to do the right thing to no avail. If whoever installed these meters cannot even be bothered to monitor their functionality or provide a correct phone number to report problems, then they have no right to collect revenues. Who knows what mismanagement goes on with their collections if this is how they treat their income source?
