Tell the public what they want to hear and then go into executive seesion. Sorry I can't be there, but I would love to hear how well the snow was removed, even with all of the vehicles that were never moved and covered with snow. Such a waste of paper and time for the notices to be placed on each vehicle. The PSD performed as expected, no parking violations issued and no vehicles towed. Even with free parking offered, the typical R Islander thumbed his/her nose to PSD, knowing very well that the impotent force would not enforce any emergency notifications. It certainly wasn't because PSD couldn't patrol, they just couldn't or wouldn't remove themselves from their vehicle seats.
