Abstract (Document Summary)

[Les Grossman], the owner of Les' Lunch at 607 Ridge Ave., is one of dozens of businesses in the 1st and 6th wards that are complaining over the Allentown Parking Authority's expansion into their neighborhood.

The presence of the authority has been a special headache to Larry Mikitz, who operates L&M Auto Body at 1945 S. 2nd St. In addition to writing tickets for traffic violations, enforcement officers also cite cars without inspection stickers, which is a violation of city ordinances.
