    let the complaining begin ….1…..2…..3….. GOOOOOO !

    • BermudaRat says:

      Surely tax payers have had enough of the road closures and car parks being closed.
      Just where do you suppose that seniors might park for seven days from
      Wednesday, June 12 until next Tuesday June 18 which is quite unreasonable.
      Could there not have been more notice so that other meetings and events could have been arranged in advance?

      • Heal says:

        And this is exactly why retail sales are down!!! No parking convenience equals no sales!!! COH has also magnified sales drop by restricting early morning parking on Reid Street and those stupid sidewalks! Seniors can’t get ready access to shops and young people don’t want to waste time! Not rocket science people!
