Mike Magley responds to the "Manlius Parking Problems" article with his second letter to the editor
The parking issue facing Manlius is not a result of who controls the Clancy-Magley Enterprises, LLC (“Clancy-Magley”) parking area. Parking is a premium in the Village of Manlius, as noted in the Jan. 22 Manlius village board meeting. Bella Cigna recently went through issues of parking, just as the newly opened Ironwood Pizza now faces. The parking issue is a matter of quantity, not of control.

Dear Editor: I would like to provide facts in response to issues raised by your recent article.
Be careful when parking in the village of Manlius these days- because there’s a very good chance you’ll get towed. That’s been the case for the last three weeks for customers parking behind businesses on the 100 and 200 blocks of East Seneca Street. In early January, Mike Magley, who owns the lot behind Café 119 and his building, which houses 4 businesses, including Feats of Clay and Lonsdale Salon, sent a letter to John Freightenburgh, the owner of Ironwood Pizza. In the letter he stated that Freightenburgh should start letting customers know that they cannot park in his lot. The next day, cars were being towed.
