Late Payment Sanctions

The City assesses late payment penalties when a violator fails to pay the original parking violation fine on time. The late payment penalty schedule is summarized below.

Late Payment Schedule: Effective July 1, 2015

Schedule
Condition Penalty
The ticket is not suspended or the payment is not  received within 22 days of parking ticket issuance 100 percent of original parking violation fine
The ticket is not suspended or the payment is not  received within 45 days of parking ticket issuance 300 percent of original parking violation fine

A failure to pay or successfully contest a parking ticket on a timely basis can result in significant late payment penalties and collection fees. (For example: if a violator fails to pay a $15 meter fine within 22 days, the total amount due is $30.00—the $15 original fine plus a $15 late payment penalty. After 45 days, the amount due becomes $60.00—the $15 original fine, plus a $45 late payment penalty.)
