Toledo, police union fight over parking

Associated Press Published:

TOLEDO -- The city of Toledo is again fighting with the police union over who should be writing the parking tickets downtown.

The Blade newspaper reports that the mayor's office has ordered the Downtown Toledo Parking Authority to resume writing tickets for vehicles parked illegally downtown, other than those at expired meters.

The head of the city's police patrolmen and command officers unions has filed grievances claiming that is police work. In 2010, the city ignored the objection of two unions and told the parking authority it could begin expanding the types of tickets it writes for vehicles.

The city backed down by early 2011 and reversed its decision.
