The village/town “MIGHT” be also assuming a tremendous liability issue if a car is stolen or damaged in a paid lot.In other cities despite PARK AT YOUR OWN RISK OR DISCLAIMER ON LIABILITY ISSUES of said city twice in 30years I had cars stolen and recovered losses from those parking lots.

Let the buyer beware.

That is what liability insurance does. You might have recovered only because the insurance company deemed it easier or more efficient to pay you than fight you.

For the town they have to balance the revenues vs the expenses including the cost of liability insurance which may not be that bad in BF.

The only one that would steal my ride could be the junk and steel man with a flatbed and a broom and shovel

Once again these boards put the squeeze on the people of the village who cannot afford the basic's never mind a $40 parking permit, it's just another scam to make a buck in that village. At what point are the going to realize they can't afford the cadillac services they have on a VW budget ? The Town & Village have no industry, the downtown shopping is a joke and there is not leadership. These combined boards with their self serving members have ruined what used to be a great place to call home.

John ~ It is nice to see that you have some constructive criticism of the municipal problems. Perhaps you could offer some real life solutions to real life problems. Or you might decide to go public and run for office where you could actually make a difference by putting forth some of the ideas which you apparently believe the municipal leaders do not. How are they "self serving" as you say? There are a number of citizen committees and local volunteer organizations that I'm sure could use your help, energy and support. Why not do that instead of taking anonymous pot shots at the people who are actually trying to come up with solutions?

Hey Dinty : These are not anonymous pot shots has you like to say. I have been a resident of this village for over 50 years and have served the community, I have spent my whole life here and I have watched as the last few board and managers have destroyed this town, I speak the truth, it it hurts your feelings maybe you should stop reading what I post. WE HAVE NO INDUSTRY, WE HAVE NO JOBS WE DON'T EVEN HAVE A STORE WHERE THE ELDERLY CAN SHOP FOR CLOTHING. Where am I wrong ? I think we have a good fire and police department, but can we has a community afford it ? Could we perhaps not cut back a little somewhere ? And If you want to take issue with me being anonymous, what is "Dinty Moore" ? Are you on a board sr ? do you serve ? Elections are coming maybe you can run using the name dinty moore.
