COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Manitou Springs officials refused to talk about what's causing the downtown Park and Pay delay. The park and pay system was suppose to start Monday. Now, there is no word on when it will begin.
There were people walking the streets of Manitou Springs who have dreaded parking here since we started following this story early May. Cars line all available parking spots downtown, but the city is still seeing no revenue from the parking.
The Park and Pay signs are up, the payment kiosks look ready, but looks are deceiving.
The machines sit covered in bags even though they were supposed to be activated Monday.
KRDO NewsChannel13 went to city hall to get answers, and parking enforcement officials refused to tell us the problem.
The public was supposed to have a few weeks to learn about the system, and not start ticketing until May 25. Those in charge say wouldn't say if this delay changes their plan.
