City Council veto means BX drivers can save their quarters on SundayPosted: Updated:
Bronx drivers can put away their wallets since the City Council successfully voted 42-2 Tuesday to override Mayor Michael Bloomberg?s (R-NY) veto of a bill that eliminated Sunday meter parking.
Bloomberg continues to reiterate that the bill, which has become commonly known as ?Pay to Pray,? will hinder local businesses and is biased against other religions that practice on days other than Sunday. Sunday meter parking was originally installed after the 9/11 attacks to help the city out of a budget deficit.
Bronx and city drivers will no longer have to pay starting after Election Day.
