What a tease! The Daily Gazette doesn't let you read their online articles if you're not a subscriber.

Great that PEF hopes to return to the negotiating table, but the state layoffs have already begun: a friend just lost her job. :(

Troy has way more parking downtown than any other city I visit. There are 3 parking garages downtown and 2 are within 1000ft of Monument Square. There are public surface lots nearby. Outside the downtown core there is tons of street parking with few to no restrictions. It is unrealistic to expect cities to have parking directly in front of your destination like the suburbs. That's WHY they're different classifications.
