City hires parking director

The City of Ithaca has its new director of parking, who was introduced to the Board of Public Works Monday.

Frank Nagy, a board member of the New England Parking Council, previously served as district manager for Republic Parking System.

Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick stressed a need for the position in his 2013 budget proposal, as the city loses at least $1 million a year for parking, bringing in $2 million in revenue, but spending $3 million.

Nagy will use his new role to create a more efficient parking system to bring in new revenue.
