City of Detroit rejects Orr's plan to send out RFP for privatizing parking system

Parking meter - time expired reports that the city signed off on Orr's request to send out bids for proposals with a 6-2 voting yesterday. Orr's plan was to see if monetizing or privatizing its parking system could make sense since the current situation clearly isn’t working. The system hasn’t been run effective for the past years.

MetroTimes reported earlier: "Orr (Detroit Emergency Manager, red.), who’s planning to leave town in the coming months, has decided to move ahead with what’s a surprise to no one: a solicitation for proposals to either run Detroit’s entire municipal parking department, or buy the system outright. By the time you read this, City Council may have already signed off on Orr’s request to allow him to issue a request for proposals."
