If the parking fine is paid within the 30 business days, you may deduct $5 ($25 for handicap parking) from the ticket total.
For example, I have a $20 parking ticket for overtime. I pay within 5 business days, I write a check for $15. If you pay after 5 business days, the deduction is not allowed.
If a parking fine is not paid within 30 days a Law Enforcement Notice is sent. After 30 days an additional $25 fine is levied on the parking ticket and an approximate, 15 days later, a summons is issued.
Once a summons has been issued, payment may not be accepted by the Treasurer's Office. You must appear before the Records Management Division of the Police Department (9710 Jefferson Ave., 757-928-4100 between the hours of 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday) to have the summons served. If you have any questions, feel free to email the Treasurer's Office.
