Tempers flare over Greenwich parking problem
Tempers flared in Greenwich Wednesday after a police official was forced to move his car from a metered spot, which he says infringed on his civil rights.Lt. Mark Kordick, vice president of the police union, says he was parked legally despite being forced to move. Officers complain that there is not enough parking due to construction on a new public safety complex. The town had been forced to close the police parking lot but attempted to address concerns on Tuesday by putting 32 more parking spaces behind the town hall. First Selectman Jim Lash says when police park in metered spots it leaves less for the public.
Both parties agree the only guaranteed solution to the controversy will come in two years with the completion of the new Greenwich public safety complex and parking garage.
