I was recently disappointed when my car was towed from a vacant parking lot in downtown Provo at 9 p.m. on a Saturday evening. Living in Salt Lake City, I made the assumption that parking was free after 6 p.m. I just want to say thank you to the Salt Lake City Council and to local businesses that make Salt Lake City an inviting place by allowing free parking in the evening. We have a great example in Provo of what would happen if this were to change: a vacant, uninviting downtown.
