Parking Permits Rules and Regulations

Additional Parking Permits Regulations

  • Valid “month” sticker must be displayed at all times. 
  • Permits will not be issued to or renewed for any person who has outstanding parking violations.
  • Vehicles must have a valid registration for the permit to be valid. Unregistered vehicles on city property are subject to towing at the vehicle owner’s expense. Any permit displayed on an unregistered vehicle may be revoked, and no refund will be issued.  
  • Permits holders must provide a name, address and contact number.
  • Failure to move a vehicle upon request or ignoring posted signs restricting parking in a specific location may result in revocation of the parking permit.
  • Any permit, or any part thereof, that is altered or falsified shall be revoked, and no refund will be issued. In the case of a business or entity with multiple permits, this revocation is not limited to the permit in question; all issued permits are subject to revocation, and no refund will be issued.
  • Permits are non-refundable.
  • Permits do not supersede a declared Winter Parking Ban.
