I took my son to the recent spring game. Before the game I got an email from U of M that pointed me here:
http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/041610aaa.html it says for the Michigan Spring football game "Parking: The lots around Michigan Stadium owned and operated by the University of Michigan are free and open to the public. "
I parked in the same lot I pay to park in for games in the fall. It is owned and operated by the University of Michigan and is near the stadium (but not next to it). According the the note from the University, parking there should be free during the spring game but of course since it was Ann Arbor, I got a ticket anyway.
I appealed to the parking referee and got the following response:
"Thank you for your statements. Your inquiry has been reviewed. It has been decided that the citation in valid. The statement refers to the lots adjacent to the stadium, of which this is not one."
I guess I need to have an argument with what "around" the stadium means. I have no satisfaction from anyone at the U either. Anyone happen to have Brandon's email address?
Why does Ann Arbor continue to piss people off and discourage them from visiting? It's one of the reasons I no longer live there.
