The Indianapolis Tea Party has asked the city to waive the parking bill for its 15 April "Tax Day Rally" at the Indiana Statehouse, reports Cory Shouten on

Members of the group parked in metered spaces closed off to public parking by "emergency order" of the Indianapolis Police Department.

Without a waiver from the Board of Public Works, the group would have to pay $450, or $15 per meter per day for the 30 meters it reserved along Washington Street, said DPW spokeswoman Molly Deuberry.

Deuberry said the Tea Party event is the first time in memory a politically minded group characterized as a nonprofit has applied for a parking meter waiver, Shouten writes.
