Amalgamation of Calgary Parking Authority into City of Calgary Transportation Dept with or under Roads.
Why is this an ambitious idea?
This is not ambitious just a solid arguement. CPA is duplicating work by City of Calgary Roads Department just ask the Traffic Engineering Dept and Traffic Field Operations inaccurate billing for work orders. It’s all wasted taxpayer dollars. I request that you do a study before you hire the next CPA General Manager as clearly the last hire/fire was inappropriate with women and general responsibilities, not to mention the previous fiasco with CPA.
It’s not public but the CPA and Roads workforces know and it’s been incredibly destructive for morale. Parkplus system is also dying with the waves of better technology.
How do we measure the effectiveness of this idea?
Ask yourselves how much you have spent trying to sell the outdated Parkplus System and how much revenue it has brought into the City? International Parking Institute does not promote Parkplus and here’s the best apps. https://www.parking.org
Ask yourselves with a continuous declining economy start of 2014 what is the return revenue CPA brings in? Rates have been dropped so expect a smaller return City Council.
Duplicated work that could be absorbed by The City of Calgary - technicians, CFO, HR, GM, local38 employees, IT, the list goes on and on and on... snow route parking bans, I could make lists all day.
How is this idea attainable through the use of technology or data?
Stop wasting money to sell a pipe dream called Parkplus. CPA has to go back to their traditional services, parking enforcement and collection of revenue. Parkplus was designed in 2004, that’s 14 years ago, technology has changed Parkplus has not. Consolidate CPA with Roads and cut the most expensive part out wasting time and taxpayer dollars on medical, dental, wages, pensions,snow removal, HR, and every duplicated job that cost the taxpayers money. CPA is not a business.
