Mayor Nutter Vetoes Parking Surcharge, Finnigan’s Wake Expansion

Mayor Nutter has vetoed a bill that would have allowed Finnigan’s Wake—the NoLibs joint owned by Democratic committeeman Mike Driscoll—to expand. The proposal would have let Driscoll add balconies above the sidewalk on Spring Garden. Mayor Nutter also vetoed a bill that would have added a surcharge to parking tickets, sponsored by City Councilman Mark Squilla, because the proceeds wouldn’t have gone to the Philadelphia School District, which would have violated a state law.
