Officials rally support to override veto on Sunday meters in BronxPosted: Updated:
Some local officials and Democratic mayoral opponent Fernando Ferrer (D-Bronx) rallied support at Bronx churches Sunday to override Mayor Michael Bloomberg?s (R-NY) veto of a bill that would eliminate Sunday meter parking.
The City Council will vote October 11 to override Bloomberg?s rejection of what has become known as the ?Pay to Pray? bill. Bloomberg vetoed the City Council?s vote to end metered parking in August saying drivers not having to pay to park will hurt businesses. Bloomberg also said it was biased against other religious denominations who worship on other days of the week.
The City Council is expected to successfully override Bloomberg?s decision.
