I am in receipt of your November 21, 2013 e-mail. Before I respond, I want to clarify one thing. You received a ticket because you had an expired meter. You know it and I know it and that should have been the end of it.
At this point, however, I cannot justify spending any more of the City of New Britain’s resources on a $10.00 parking ticket. Although a Freedom of Information Commission hearing would be a waste of time and would not result in a reversal of the parking ticket fine, I will accept your offer that your parking ticket appeal be dismissed with prejudice provided you agree to not pursue a complaint with the Freedom of Information Commission. I need you to confirm via e-mail. Once the confirmation is received, I will instruct the Ms. Webber’s office to dismiss your ticket.
One could use my technique to get almost any parking ticket dismissed in this state. No one complies with our open meeting requirements under the FOIA Act.
If one gets a parking ticket, PM me and I'll let you know the steps needed to win almost every parking ticket w/o the need for even having to present a case.
I would have won this case on the merits too ... but why chance their "fair hearing" if one can beat them down to dismiss the case?
I will not follow though with a FOIC case against the town .. I figure, let them continue their procedures that violate the law...
