Shreveport City Council receives parking debacle report

Shreveport, LA(KSLA)- Shreveport City Council has recently received a report on the airport's parking debacle that happened this past summer.

The report found that the airport did follow proper procedures when it entered the contract with Nationwide parking, but it was not enforced properly.

But, the report found both Nationwide and Airport Director Roy Miller at fault for not following and enforcing the contract.

It also showed that the airport did not keep up with required paperwork.

Airport Director Roy Miller called the parking report fair and did not disagree with anything in it.

Miller says hindsight is 20/20 when it comes to the parking contractor getting behind on payments.

"We sent them late notices and made efforts to collect from the very beginning so it simply accumulated because of the amount of money each month, but, our accounting department was involved immediately with trying to recover any funds once they got behind," said Miller.

Miller added, attorneys are suing the people behind the company.

He also says they did not expect the company to file bankruptcy, which clouded the entire situation, most importantly getting reimbursed.
