In the previous Michigan Privatization Report "Privatize Parking Garages" the author described Ann Arbor parking garages as
being owned by the Downtown Development Authority. Technically, they are owned
by the city which contracts with the Authority for their operation. The
Authority then contracts with Republic Parking System for day-to-day operations.
Parking meters are not enforced after 6:00 p.m. though Republic does work after
6 p.m operating public structures and attended lots.
In the article, "Cobo Hall: It’s Time to Sell," Novi Center
Expo executive Blair Bowman was incorrectly identified as a "she," instead of a
"he." MPR regrets the error.
