As you know we seem to have insufficient car spaces for all employees and there is often mayhem with cars parked in all weird and wonderful positions. We have been operating under a system of reserved spaces and I would like to revise the way car-parks are allocated.
As you also know the Global and Australian economy has taken a dive and we need to be on the lookout for new revenue opportunities.
Considering these issues I propose that from the 1st May we operate a user pays system for the carparking. With the exception of my car space, all spaces will be available to all staff. During April we will conduct an auction on the spaces with each space being allocated to the highest bidder for a period of 6 months. The winner will have unrestricted access to their car space for the 6 month period and the space will then be re-auctioned. The winning bidders will have their bid amount deducted from their monthly salary in 6 equal instalments.
In addition to the marked spaces, 6 additional spaces will be marked off giving us a total 18 spaces (including mine) therefore 17 spaces will be available for auction. Cars that do not have an allocated space will need to find off-site parking. Parking on the council owned driveway will not be allowed.
I will provide more information on how the auction will proceed at a later time but I the meantime I am open to take any comments on how the proposed system could be improved.
How much will it cost for me to park my new Segway?
I think we just have to be smarter with our parking like this –
