This is a pretty nice scam that the owners of AIM Parking Mgmt. are trying to pull.

The company, which manages a number of MBTA commuter stations, is suing for breach on contract following the MBTA’s decision to raise parking lot fees.  The company says it needs an additional $267,000 just so it can count all the additional money.

Seriously, WTF. We hear all the time up here how government should run more like the private business. Well imagine if a public agency tried to pull a stunt like this… Howie and Michael Graham and everyone else would be in a froth over how absurd it is, and how the people proposing it are a bunch of fat hyenas feeding off the bones of taxpayers, etc.

At least the MBTA had the cojones to say no to AIM Parking. I suspect that if they had demanded this money a couple years ago when the MBTA wasn’t about to go bankrupt, they may have succeeded in their scam.
