The Raleigh City Council has approved Mayor Meeker's new underground parking deck - to go with his downtown Hotel and Convention Center. This $45 million parking deck brings the total cost of Mayor Meeker's Center/Hotel complex to over $250 million.
What would taxpayers have saved if the Mayor had decided to build an above ground parking deck? $20 - $25 million.
That's enough to build a class high school.
This is a question Republicans should ask Meeker in the next election. Why is putting a parking deck underground more important than building a school?
