The PPA, a state created entity, is the only public agency in the city where Republicans rule. There, the Democrats play along for their slice.

Philly Parking Authority battles Council on audit

http://www.philly.com/philly/news/p...rking_Authority_battles_Council_on_audit.html

Council members David Oh and Helen Gym wanted a final vote on their resolution, calling for City Controller Alan Butkovitz to audit the Philadelphia Parking Authority for the first time since 2009.

Oh, a Republican, and Gym, a Democrat, want to know what happened with PPA money that had been expected to fund the Philadelphia School District.

Council members ask PPA: How did school money get booted?

Council members used Friday's hearing to take a broad look at the PPA's financial operations, questioning how the agency spends its approximately $240 million annual budget and whether operating costs are cutting into revenue for the city and schools.

Interesting responses I get from this topic, look @ the latest :

Had to go visit them back in 2004 or so for a Taxi license, nothing but high end cars in their parking lot. If you thought dealing with DMV was bad, go deal with them, and not even as a parking violator, just as someone who wants to work in the city. They added so many fees and violations towards cab owners/drivers, it made what the cab driver had to pay per shift (12 hours usually) go up at least $10-$20 (so, $55 a shift went up to 65/70 which was the MAX at the time) almost immediately after they took over.

I just got that feeling that grift, and nepotism was going on down there.

Joseph J. DeFelice, PhillyGOP's Executive Director served as PPA's General Counsel.

Vince Fenerty, PhillyGOP's Secretary runs PPA (he's PPA Executive Director)

Walter Vogler, PhillyGOP's Treasurer is a PPA Deputy Director

Michael P. Meehan, PhillyGOP's General Counsel? The Inquirer has described him as having the "PPA strongly in his grip" and adds:

The Parking Authority has been paying hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to Meehan's law firms. His old firm, Wolf Block Schorr & Solis-Cohen, received $1.3 million from the Parking Authority from 2003 until the firm closed last year. So far, about $145,000 in Parking Authority legal work has followed Meehan to his new firm, Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott, according to authority records.
