“The proposal for free residential parking in three zones from November 1 was not approved by the City Council. KDU-ČSL, T. Koláčný of the Pirate Party, and M. Hollan from Žít Brno voted in favour of the proposal,” according to Czech Television’s “Události Brno” this morning, retweeting information from Barbora Měchurová of CT.
