City needs to get clear about paid parking rules

With the way fees are now collected — per license and not by space — how does the city figure a true and accurate accounting of revenues that should be collected from seawall paid parking?

People are taking up five spaces but only have two license plates.

Also, there are no officers assigned to monitor the seawall.

This past weekend, people were camping overnight on the beach.

Motor homes were parked on the seawall from Friday until Sunday for only $25, not paying one dime of hotel occupancy tax that is charged for every hotel room and every unit in a rental pool in Galveston.

This seems a bit unfair to the people paying the high price for a hotel room, which includes the tax.

Lastly, what are the rules and regulations pertaining to the seawall?

I’d like to ask The Daily News to please print them in paper.
