Try to find way to allow public to use garage

Though the Wichita City Council voted Tuesday to begin work on closing off the City Hall parking garage to the public, it's good that the council asked staff to try to find a way to let the public continue to park there. After all, the public paid for the garage and should, if at all possible, be allowed to use it. Additional security measures are needed in this day and age, but they should be reasonable and not create unnecessary barriers between the people and their government.
