Parking violators who never quite understood why former Mayor Sharon Pratt Kelly’s administration enforced every parking rule with unusual zeal might want to take note of a new report from the D.C. Auditor. According to the audit, Fletcher Wiley, Kelly’s brother-in-law, serves on the board of PRWT Services, a company subcontracted in 1993 to help process the 2 million parking tickets issued each year. The subcontract wasn’t disclosed during Kelly’s term. The auditor also blasted DPW for a variety of administrative no-nos, including illegally using ticket revenues to pay for parking enforcement instead of seeking congressional appropriations. Director Larry King responded by saying that DPW’s contractors do a good job, but refused to comment on the auditor’s recommendations that PRWT be tagged and towed.
