Quik Park, which operates the parking garages in STPCV, recently announced that customers would face a fee unless they enrolled in the online payment plan that automatically charges the monthly bill to a credit card or bank account, but Councilmember Dan Garodnick said his office has learned that this new policy will not be implemented.
Councilmember Garodnick sent a letter to StuyTown general manager Rick Hayduk and Quik Park CEO Rafael Llopiz on Wednesday regarding the new proposed policy, arguing that online payment would adversely affect the high senior population in STPCV. Garodnick noted that concerns about the proposed policy were especially high given that Quik Park had also increased its rates earlier this year.
Llopiz did not respond to a request for comment on the policy. Councilmember Garodnick’s letter to Llopiz and Hayduk is below.
