YOUR VIEW: The Arch Street parking meters are a sham

To the Editor:

The new meter parking on Arch Street seems a little discriminatory.

Funny how the meters STOP directly after the Five Churches Brewery. My wife and I travel 45 miles from southeastern Connecticut to support New Britain’s small business brewery and were greeted with a $1.50/hr. parking meter when we arrived. SURPRISE!

Apparently has caught the owners of Five Churches by surprise as well, who tell us they were never informed or given a chance to voice an opinion on said meters. Great job New Britain, (sarcasm btw) you have made this customer now think twice about traveling to your city to patronize your businesses.
