Parking Order Enforcement

Parking hearing orders may be enforced by the following:

  • Vehicle impoundment if the subject vehicle is found on any public street, public right-of-way, public easement, or city-owned parking facility, or other public property if the vehicle owner has committed three (3) or more offenses in any calendar year
  • Immobilization of the subject vehicle (booting) if found on any public right-of-way, easement, city owned parking facility or other public property
  • Imposition of a $10 fine after 14 days of non-payment
  • Refusing registration of the subject vehicle


No action can be taken in any case before the submission of the ticket to the municipal court and the creation of a parking case in the court docketing system.

If the case is created after the hearing date on the ticket, a summons with a new hearing date will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. You can verify that the case has been created by searching for it on the municipal court website.
