    After court sides with PPA, attorney who wants to 'abolish' agency vows to fight on
    Some 14 months ago, Philadelphia attorney Michael Coard declared war on a Philadelphia Parking Authority that, in his estimation, was a "vulture" victimizing residents and visitors to the tune of $12 million in faulty tickets. His call to abolish the PPA directly stemmed from a ticket he received in September 2015 for allegedly parking in a bus zone.

    City Seeks Restaurateurs For Renovated Love Park Welcome Center
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The city is seeking restaurateurs to run the food concession at the Love Park Welcome Center once it's renovated. The 1960s-era Welcome Center, also known as the spaceship, has been closed for years. But the city, last week, allowed a half dozen restaurant operators to tour the circular, bi-level building as they prepared proposals for the food and beverage concessions there.
