Derby aldermen vote to dissolve Parking Authority

DERBY >> Come June 30, the city no longer will have a Parking Authority.

In its place will be a Parking Division, led by the mayor’s office.

That was the official action taken by the Board of Aldermen during its monthly meeting Thursday. The board unanimously voted to dissolve the existing five-member Parking Authority, an appointed board of volunteers that was run independent of city business and city government.

The move to dissolve the Parking Authority actually came as a request earlier this year by some of its volunteer members. Chairman Anthony Dulla said having the agency taken over by City Hall, or more specifically the mayor’s office, will enable various functions, such as payroll, routine maintenance, bookkeeping and oversight of the municipal parking garage, to now be under the supervision of elected city officials.
