    City Hall parking lot has really become rough lately.

    • Zombie Apocalypse says:

      It’s always full of drunks swearing, spitting, making comments at women.

      It’s illegal to drink alcohol in public, but if you put the bottle in a brown paper bag, that is apparently enough to easily outwit any policeman.

      • jerky says:

        my thoughts exactly. i avoid parking there some days just so i wouldn’t have to deal with it.

    • Just One says:

      Yeah, they need to clean up that lot, too many drunks/bums.

  2. Bird says:

    I agree drink in public is not a crime just ask the police

    I was also going to comment about the amount of loitering and drinking that goes on not only in the City Hall car park but also right in front of City Hall… in the middle of the day. I went in to City Hall to ask about this and they seem totally frustrated that no one seems to have any ‘power’ to prevent this behaviour. What are we now, a bunch of wimps? Our standards for public behaviour have hit a very low point. All there seems to be is a robust passing of the buck! Shame on us!

    Police need to clean up City Hall…

  6. enough says:

    Read the law. It is not illegal to drink in public.
    It is, however, illegal to drink alcohol in a public STREET.

    • Mad Dawg says:

      It is illegal to drink in City Hall car park and on the sidewalk outside City Hall.

      • enough says:

        Sidwalk yes, carpark, no.

        • Ringmaster says:

          Clarify please. Street No; sidewalk Yes; car park No. Are you sure you haven’t had a quick nip or two yourself?

        • Mad Dawg says:

          Sidewalk yes, car park yes.

          “Anyone who drinks intoxicating liquorbon on any Corporation land” yes.

  7. Bum-Bye says:

    Maybe if and when we activate the fees for the Santa Clause Parade we will also activate a fee for admittance to the City Hall Parking BAR.
    $2,500 fine for consumption of alcohol within City Hall Bar Limits.
    Then again if this is enforced Arnold’s will suffer because of loss off Revenue from the Liquor Outlet across the street.

  8. terry says:

    All city haul has to do is send them a registered letter. And if they are homeless et al hand it to them in the presence of a JP.
    They then can be arrested for trespass. Then again this involves more police and time.
    That what happens when Government and Corpoations get entwined and everything becomes EZZ’Y.

  9. More Confused says:

    That’s what happens when you allow your voting base to become too friendly with the elected officials. Not unsurprisingly they probably consider City Hall as the new shelter.

  10. Frustated City Taxpayer says:

    Hey Mr Mayor

    While Rome burns, have you signed off on the new code of conduct. I guess that is more important than the peoples business. While I have your ear, any chance the street lights can be turned on after dusk in Par La Ville Park and talking of lights, how come those lightbulbs that are still working, are left on 24/7 around the top of the Birdcage. How about a stroll around your decaying city one day, I’ll be glad to show you the sights cos I haven’t seen you for a while.

    • Mad Dawg says:

      There won’t be any sign-off until the expensive lawyers have tinkered with it. Got to have a loophole or two. You might want to vote on -say- a hotel development where you’re the developer. Need to build in a way around things like that.

      That is the really important stuff.

  11. Keepin' it Real...4Real! says:

    i think its time for phillip rego to come back from haiti and take care of his own little haiti ….

  12. Awake says:

    @Keepin’ it Real: Why is it Phillip Rego’s responsibility? Are you doing anything to assist, here or in Haiti? SMDH

  13. And what is the “new City Hall” members doing about this?? Not a thing!!
    please tell me that none of them see this happening? Oh I forgot Graham & Donall arrive via the back entrance and are only concerned with changing the name of a theater and working on the par-la-ville hotel (which he is involved with).

    Only self interests involved here


  14. Triangle Drifter says:

    Hope the guilty are held liable for the damage caused. What’s a mirror? $300-$500?

    I have to agree that City Hall parking lot is no longer a pleasant place. There used to be a small group of polite men that would congregate and maybe have a few beverages during the day. Now it reeks of urine, glass beer bottles and ciggarette butts litter the lot, and it is plagued by foul language and rude vagrants. I had parked there one day to support my local shops and buy Bermuda and returned to the car with my 2 year old to find empty beer bottles surrounding my car, the strong smell of urine, and not far away was a group of men (and even one woman) who were shouting obscenities – So loud in fact that my child started repeating it. Is there a more family friendly place to park in Hamilton these days??
