In addition, I am also requesting records that detail the total number of parking passes sold to the public sincethe inception of the parking plan to today, Jan. 4, cost of the passes and for what lots. Please also provide the number of parking violations in relation to the new plan that have been issued by the city since the new parking plan's inception to today, Jan. 4.
If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me if the cost will exceed $20.
