"The compromise approved Wednesday will require receipts given by machines or a lot attendant as proof of payment for any lot opened after Wednesday.
It will impose the receipt requirement in phases for existing lots.
The largest number of boot complaints came from Deep Ellum, and that area will get the receipt requirement on Jan. 1, 2010. Other lots would be added by July 1, 2011.
By Jan. 1, 2011, all lots in the city must provide receipts before they will be permitted to boot cars."
