The Scranton, Pa., City Council on Thursday tabled a five-year contract with Standard Parking Corp. to manage the city's on-street, or metered parking, citing concerns over fees and revenue projections.

The council will take up the matter again — and a companion bill to expand meter times by two hours daily, and add Saturdays — next Thursday. Scranton, the 77,000-population seat of Lackawanna County, is a distressed community under the state's recovery program known commonly as Act 47.
