City Council expected to decide if Bronx residents should pay for parking on Sundays

The City Council is expected to vote Wednesday to eliminate paying for meters on Sundays.

The City Council had previously passed a citywide measure to end metered parking on Sundays. However, Mayor Bloomberg vetoed that decision in August. Now, City Council Speaker Gifford Miller vows to override the veto.

The Sunday parking meter regulation was first enacted in 2003 when the city was still strapped for cash in the aftermath of 9/11. City Council members say with the city?s resurgence, such a measure is no longer needed.

If passed, the law would take effect 30 days after it?s enacted.
