Parking Enforcement

The Parking Enforcement function works to improve the quality of life for our community by enforcing State and City vehicle regulations with empathy and integrity. Parking regulations help maintain traffic flow and enhance public safety, and they complement the City’s commitment to promote a safe environment for residents, businesses, and visitors. Parking Enforcement Officers patrol City streets and parking lots, and primarily respond to reports from residents. They also identify stolen, abandoned, inoperative, and unregistered vehicles on public streets.

You may report a parking concern, pay or appeal a citation, or read frequently asked questions about parking enforcement below.
