Parking Ticket Amnesty


This opportunity allows residents to clean their slates, saving them time, money, and the hassle of potential legal action resulting from unpaid parking tickets.



What is Amnesty Day?

The Common Council passed Ordinance Number 10471-16, which gives the City Controller the ability to declare an annual Parking Ticket Amnesty Day, the one day per year when parking ticket late fees will be forgiven, allowing those with unpaid parking tickets to pay the original cost of the ticket only, potentially reducing total costs owed by 50%. This excludes any ticket which has been referred to the City Legal Department for collection or other action.

Amnesty Day will occur on Friday, July 26, 2024 from 8:00am to 5pm.
