Parking Violation Fine Revised December 2022

The Village has adjusted fines for parking violations for the first time in over a decade, in order to overcome a persistent parking authority budget deficit. Most importantly, the initial fine for basic meter violation is increasing from $15 to $25. Late payments for all types of violations result in increased fines. Besides the meter violation fine, all other fines (parking in a loading zone, fire zone, etc.) remain unchanged for the initial fine, but the late payment fines are increased, the intention being to incentivize on-time payment of the initial fine. Parking rules enforcement is essential to creating turnover in parking spaces, and therefore access to parking for those who need it, in addition to protecting traffic and pedestrian safety.
