To approve a $90,000 study to evaluate whether to install parking meters downtown while the overwhelmingly majority of local business owners oppose the idea --- outrageous! The entire community should protest until those responsible for this asinine study resign. When do we get outraged enough about the stupidity in our midst? Is this being done by the same idiots who proposed bulb outs on Santa Cruz Avenue just a few years ago -- leading to a similar revolt and waste of $300,000 in taxpayer funds? Does the City of Menlo Park ever learn? How is it that with such an educated population, we get government at this astonishingly low level? We deserve better.
