CITY VS. COUNTY: In Oakland, Chris Metinko reported Alameda County has filed suit against the city of Oakland for enforcing its 18.5% city parking tax on "spots on the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum property," which is jointly owned by the county and city. The new enforcement of the tax "will have an immediate effect on baseball fans," as the A's said that parking fees "will go up $2 at the Coliseum starting with the next homestand" that begins on July 16. County officials said that the tax "should not be imposed on land owned by the county and would cost the county money" (OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 7/7).
MISSED PAYMENTS: In Colorado Springs, Rich Laden reported Colorado-based OZ Architecture "has filed a $185,498 mechanic's lien against LandCo Equity Partners," the developer of the planned downtown USOC HQs. Liens are "legal claims brought by contractors and subcontractors who haven't been paid or who question a payment." Three other companies "had filed liens or notices of liens on more than $200,000 in work on the building" (Colorado Springs GAZETTE, 7/8).
