How about a "Toys for Tickets" program in Milwaukee?
How about a "Toys for Tickets" program in Milwaukee?

Pay your parking tickets with toys?

I get my share of parking tickets, and I pay them. But Boston has a creative way to pay tickets and it's one that I think Milwaukee and area communities should consider.  

The idea is simple. Payment of December parking tickets in toys, not cash. Especially during the Christmas and Holiday season, this seems like a no-brainer and idea that should be implemented. 

Of course parking ticket revenue is important, but aren’t smiles on kids who may not get toys this season more important?  

I’ve planted this "Toys for Tickets" idea with Mayor Barrett, and a staff person in his office says they "like the idea."  Let’s see if and when it can be implemented.

I don't care if I'm the grinch, but why should my taxes go up because there's less revenue coming in from tickets? If you want to donate a gift, do it with your own money.

Jeff pays his parking tickets?!? Why should any of us have to pay parking tickets when our own millionaire county executive can't even be bothered to do it?
