Every year on July 3, Benicians flock to the downtown area to watch the Torchlight Parade. And every year people get there early to "reserve" their spot, either in City Park or along the parade route.
The city will put out signs asking citizens not to put blankets or chairs out before 9 a.m. Sunday. Last year, City Park was pretty well covered in blankets by 8 a.m.
Should the city enforce the 9 a.m rule for blankets in City Park? In light of the current budget problems, should the city sell prime viewing spots or better yet, auction them off?
