Note: even though I paid what the city said I was obligated to pay, keep in mind that I believe the real issue here is the City of Saratoga Springs does not have a sustainable parking solution in-place for its business community.
My company had offices in the heart of downtown. Finding parking as a business owner was a chore at best, and keeping two-steps of the police walking the ticket beat became a daily challenge.
I'm looking at opening another office in downtown, but I know the extreme risk in doing so.

I know some of these folks and they are very arrogant, like the law does not apply to them./ I hope the complete lists comes out and embarrases them enough to pay up.

Would love to know if any of these "heavy hitters" works in a downtown business and can NEVER find a place to park ??...This is a big problem for employees of downtown busniesses and restaurants.

I would like to know if Murphy is from Murphy insurance. I think so. I also wonder if Teeling is the horse trainers relation. I bet on it.

The city should recognize their parking problems, and allow these people some slack. They after all are conducting business there in City to begin with! So you see it doesn't matter who is arrogant or not. Give a discount if they pay quickly or if they don't then print the full list, put it on-line for all to see, and then tow the vehicle next time it is seen in the city whether it is parked legally or not!
They city will make out in the end, guaranteed!

The parking downtown is awful. The only reason I find a place to park is because I start at 8 am. I can't ever drive anywhere at lunch or spot is gone and there arent any others. The city needs to do something about the parking situation.

No the "Murphy" you are refering to is not Murphy Ins. This person works with a member of my family in downtown Saratoga.

They should all be arrested or have their cars impounded. That is amazing that the city let it go on this long.

Okay, while they are at arresting these folks let them also arrest folks that spit on the sidewalks, don't cross the street in the white lines, and use foul language in public. Americans are much too willing to lose their freedom.

I know Mr Rybitski as a fine person, businessman and musician.

I have said this numerous times to various city officals;

" If you ( Saratoga Springs City ) only had a PERMIT sticker for people employed in the city, for business owners and service workers, it would alleviate a lot of issues regarding upset people and copious tickets being issued to people that are just trying to make a living "

Make it a nominal fee - maybe even income contingient- sliding scale -

Then Saratoga could make money on visitors who insist on parking any where they *&^% well please...

Parking is still awful downtown....and traffic is only due to get much worse as the condo developments eventually get finished and filled. There will be a lot more cars coming in/out of town on a regular basis and the streets already are not the best.
