ROYAL OAK, Mich. (WXYZ) - A special meeting was held Friday afternoon to discuss whether there are legal and ethical issues over a deal Royal Oak City Commissioner Jim Rasor made that would allow him to receive parking profits during the Arts Beats & Eats Festival in Royal Oak.
Rasor entered into the private deal with the new owner of the parking lots on Main Street just north of 11 Mile. The deal involves him collecting parking profits with 15 percent of the proceeds going to charity.
The city takes issue with the deal because at one point the lots were under different ownership. Under the old ownership, the profits were collected by the city.
