The seawall parking program has generated more than $83,000 for the city since it began last summer, according to reports made by the state’s General Land Office. Through Feb. 28, the city’s Beach User Fee Fund had a balance of $83,430. That money, according to the report, is what the city will use for capital projects.

We have four months to go to mark year one of paid seawall parking. Does anyone have even an inkling of an idea how much money seawall parking has taken in?

I would like to see that number, so I can figure out what our monthly income has to be to take in the $ 1.7 million we were told seawall meters would take in.

An accounting was distributed at the last Finance Committee meeting. I am sure if you contact the city manager's office they will provide it for you.

Remember that "balance" is not the same as "revenue". Apples and oranges. You need to dig deeper, bottom's in the black. We're there additional amenities provided this year that you didn't see in the past?
