---- — What do you think of the city's plan to charge at the parking garage?

"I don't have a problem with it; the city needs money now as it its."

Chris Kelley, Oneonta, bar manager

"I don't think it makes sense. They randomly decide which spots are free and which cost money, you can park one place and have to pay, and then there's a place 10 feet away that's free." Eleanor Dunkle, Oneonta, retired

"It doesn't bother me. I wouldn't be directly affected; I just park at my work."

Jeffrey Dobbins, Sidney, sales

"I wish they didn't. The city benefits from the free parking, and it costs too much to start up for what little they would get back."

Thelma Pettiford, Davenport, retired

"Hey, all those improvements cost money, so why not charge the people that use it."

Tara Chaffee, Oneonta, student

"I never carry cash on me, so if they do, it will just mean I can't park there."

Anthony Brooker, Oneonta, student
