GALVESTON, Texas The Texas Supreme Court will not hear a case about Galveston's parking fees, allowing the city to continue with its new revenue-generating policy.
The Houston Chronicle reports the court rejected on Friday the suit brought by Greg Roof, whose previous lawsuit delayed for nearly 10 years the city's attempt to charge for parking along a main coastal road. Roof's lawsuit had asked the court to force the Texas General Land Office to halt the paid parking policy.
Roof says he is glad he brought the lawsuit, and isn't giving up. He says he is organizing a petition to put the repeal of seawall parking on the next ballot. Roof says it may be legal, "but it's bad public policy for our state."
