Beginning Tuesday, February 8, 2011, parking tickets and citations for other non-moving traffic violations will be handled by the Parking Services Division of the City Urban Development Department. This includes but is not limited to tickets issued during parking bans for snow removal.
Those who want to contest tickets issued on or after February 8 will use a new Parking Services administrative review process explained on the ticket. The City Attorney's office will only handle contested tickets issued before February 8.
This change moves the administration duties previously held by the Violations Bureau in the City Finance Department to the Parking Services Division. The transfer is another step in Mayor Beutler's consolidation of parking-related duties under a single division to more effectively manage the entire parking program. The duties of enforcement, meter maintenance and collections were previously handled by three other departments. These duties are now assigned to Republic Parking, a private firm which operates the off-street, on-street and enforcement responsibilities under the direction of the City's Parking Manager in the Urban Development Department.
For more information on downtown parking, call the Parking Services Division at 441-PARK (7275) or visit parkandgo.org. E-pay services include pre-paid, reserved event parking; monthly billing; the purchase and re-loading of iPark cards; and the payment of parking tickets.
