Individuals will be contacted in approximately thirty days after the citation appeal form has been submitted regarding the disposition of the appeal. The parking fine will hold at the original amount until you receive notice from our office regarding the disposition of the appeal.

Appeals are only accepted within 30 days after the date of the citation issuance.
